Red Spots On The Head Of A 9 Month Baby?
Sorry, I want to ask, I have a 9-month-old baby and I don’t know why my son’s head came out of the red spots and became one of the initial pus, but after a few days, even more and more, what was the drug and the name of the disease?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Red and festering spots that spread on the baby's scalp may be caused by prickly heat (miliaria). This condition occurs when the sweat glands are blocked, so that the sweat produced is difficult to evaporate and cause inflammation. Inflammation in the sweat glands is characterized by skin that feels itchy, streaks, and reddish watery spots appear. Often, prickly heat has a secondary infection so that pus is filled in it (miliaria pustulosa). In this condition, babies often feel uncomfortable, resulting in a desire to continue to scratch the skin, become more fussy and also have trouble sleeping. Prickly heat is most often found in the head, forehead, chest, body folds, and other body parts that often experience pressure, such as behind the neck, back, or buttocks.
In addition to prickly heat, complaints on your baby's scalp may also indicate other conditions, such as folliculitis, scabies, impetigo, chicken pox, seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis with secondary infections, contact dermatitis, and so on. Given the complaints that continue to spread, we recommend that you do not leave it alone. Check your baby directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or dermatologist so that his condition gets the appropriate treatment. Early treatment that you can do at home:
Give the baby ASI and MPASI healthy and rich in nutrition, so that the immune system is always maintained
Always take care of the baby's body, especially the head area, so that it is always clean
Only use skin care products, including scalp (for example shampoo or hair oil) that are specially formulated for babies
Avoid excessive sweating, for example by not giving babies a head covering that is too thick and tight
Do not squeeze or slough off baby's skin that looks red and festering
Do not carelessly give the baby medicine without advice from a doctor
Hope this helps ...
