Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Need to be explored further about the condition of red spots experienced by your child. Keep in mind since when the red spots appear, the location of the appearance of red spots, whether there is an increase in the number or appear in different body locations, other symptoms that arise besides red spots (fever, pain, itching, redness rash all over the body, the child becomes more fussy, skin peeling), history of allergies, history of treatment that you have given related symptoms experienced by your child.
Red spots that appear on your child can be caused by several possible causes such as atopic dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, hand, foot, mouth disesase (HFMD), urticaria or biduran, impetigo, milia, fungal infections (tinea). It is advisable to consult with a pediatrician regarding further examination and management. Direct consultation is needed so that the doctor can see the form of skin lesions that are experienced, supporting examinations such as blood tests can be considered to support the diagnosis.
Avoid giving self medication without doctor's instructions, avoid prying or trying to clean up the red spots themselves, continue to provide exclusive breastfeeding as the main source of nutrition for infants.
Hopefully this information can help you,
