Red Mark On The Hand?
good night, I want to ask in the hands of my child there is a kind of red spot birthmark, but from birth the red mark is not there after 1 month the sign appears but a small spot, now the red sign is widened, is it a birthmark or an illness? if there is a cure for the disease?
Hello Hendra, thank you for asking.
Red spots that arise on the baby's skin can occur in several conditions, for example:
rash due to itching or insect bites rash due to allergic reactions to skin infections due to bacterial or fungal birthmarks If your baby does not have signs of infection such as fever, red skin with swelling and pain, then it is likely that it is indeed a birthmark. Birthmarks can be caused by dilation of capillaries in the skin or can also be caused by a buildup of melanin (a pigment carrier).
Various forms of birthmarks include:
Vascular birthmarks. Divided into hemangiomas, macular stains, and wine stains. These birthmarks can disappear as a child ages or can also persist into adulthood. As long as there are no birthmarks near the eye or face area, these birthmarks rarely cause medical problems. Pigmented birthmarks. Divided into moles, coffee stains, and Mongolian stains. Just like vascular birthmarks, these birthmarks can disappear or persist. To get certainty about the diagnosis, you should consult directly with your doctor. Abnormalities in the skin must be seen directly by a doctor before a diagnosis can be made. For the time being you don't need to do anything to these spots. Hope this answer helps. Regards.
