Scars On The Face Of A 1-year-old Child Like Burning?
Morning, I am Zahra … I have a 1 year old baby 2 years old, on my child’s face there is 1 spot under the chin, then the spot is broken and now the wound is burning, and spreads, every time there is a scratch on the face it must be widened, why is that?
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of spots under the chin, which then burst, blisters like burning, and spread to other skin areas in babies aged 1 year may be caused by shingles (snake pox). This disease can occur in babies who have been previously infected with chickenpox, but the virus reactivates so that it passes through nerve fibers to the skin. Reactivation of this virus often occurs when the immune system is not good. Babies suffering from shingles, in addition to experiencing spots with characteristics as your baby experienced, often will also become agitated, more fussy, sensitive to light, can even become lazy to suckle.
Not just shingles, spots on your baby's chin may also indicate other medical conditions, such as contact dermatitis, chicken pox, impetigo, folliculitis, erysipelas, Singapore flu, drug eruptions, and so on. Without seeing it firsthand, it is certainly difficult for us to ascertain the cause, let alone provide treatment. Therefore, try to bring your baby directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or dermatologist to be given the best solution huh ..
In the meantime, you can do it first:
Give the baby more milk and water
Also give him variations of healthy and nutritious MPASI so that his immune system improves
Let the baby rest more
Wash the baby twice a day, clean the area around the chin and neck well, but do not rub excessively
Do not carelessly squeeze or slurp the spots that appear
Don't let your baby's skin come into contact with something that is allergenic or irritant, for example detergents, adult soap, hot objects
Keep the environment around the baby clean
Avoid babies from contact with people who are experiencing infectious skin infections
Hope this helps ...
