Hello Echa, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

All babies do have thin and sensitive skin, therefore baby skin must be cared for and cared for with great care. Red and watery in the area behind the baby's ear can be caused by several possibilities, including:

seborrheic dermatitis
atopic dermatitis

allergic or irritant contact dermatitis
fungal or bacterial infection of the skin

To find out more clearly, it is necessary to directly examine the lesions on your baby's skin. It is better if before the cause is clearly known, do not give your baby any treatment because it can cause the skin lesions to get worse. Take your baby to the pediatrician for an immediate examination.


Meanwhile, a few things you can do:

Make sure you clean your ears, including the back of your child's ears, properly when bathing your child.
Use a gentle, fragrance-free baby soap to avoid irritation due to fragrances on the soap.
Make sure that no soap residue is left behind the ears. Soap residue that is not cleaned properly can irritate the skin.
After bathing, make sure you dry the area behind your ears well. Leaving the area wet and damp can increase the risk of developing a fungal infection on the skin.
If at this time you frequently apply or use certain cream products on the baby's skin, you should stop using it temporarily, especially on the skin area behind the ear.
Avoid your child scratching his ear as this can cause injury and infection.


So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
