Hello, good afternoon Ms. Ayu ...
Previously, we need to say that to be able to ascertain the condition that you are experiencing, it requires a direct examination yes .. Because, each skin disease has its own characteristics that can only be distinguished through direct observation.
Wound conditions such as blisters on baby's face can be caused by several possibilities, such as:
Vesicobulose impetigo. This disease is a skin disorder caused by a bacterial infection causing blisters or open blotches on the skin. This disease can be transmitted directly from the skin to the skin or through intermediaries, such as towels, clothing, tableware, and so on. Bacteria enter and infect through an open layer of skin, such as wounds caused by insect bites, scratches, and so on.
Varicella (chickenpox disease)
Dematitis herpetiformis, which is inflammation of the skin (for example due to irritation or allergies) whose appearance resembles herpes
SSSS (Staphylococcal Scalded Skin Syndrome), which is a skin infection caused by bacteria that makes the skin appear blistered
We recommend that you see your child to the doctor (or more specifically to the pediatrician or dermatologist) for a direct examination to determine the exact cause of the complaint. While waiting for your doctor's appointment, here are some suggestions we can give:
supervise the child so as not to touch the wound
Do not break the blisters that form
keep the child's body clean with regular bathing twice a day
avoid sharing towels, clothes, cutlery, and other objects that may be in contact with the wound for a while
avoid dust-injured wounds
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
