Red Spots On Baby’s Face?
I want to ask, my baby is 20 days old, when he was born on the first day he had white spots on his face, he said it was milia, which they said would go away on their own. Now, if now there are more on the cheeks, but the spots are not white and red, and they are increasing every day, why is that, isn’t it dangerous?
From the information you convey, the complaint experienced by your baby is probably an inflammation of the sweat glands or milia. This condition usually doesn't bother your baby, or cause a fussy baby, and may improve after a few days or weeks. However, this condition needs to be examined directly by a pediatrician to determine the exact cause, so that the necessary treatment can be planned.
Some of the conditions below can also cause the same complaints, such as:
1. baby acne or baby acne
3. viral rash, accompanied by complaints of flu or fever
4. Inflammation of the skin due to fungus
