The Baby’s Eyelids Appear To Have Veins After They Are Dried In The Sun?
Morning Doctor … my baby is 6 months 27 days … every morning since 27 days in the sun with his grandfather in the open space … because at birth there was a history of yellow … one day I had seen when the sun was exposed to my baby exposed to the sun directly . We were able to admonish the sun to dry in the eyes … and finally “I saw that the veins appeared in my eyelids ” but did not arise .. Is that dangerous … and what are the long-term effects of the habit if the sun is exposed directly ..because my father-in-law seems to dislike the first reprimand … please doctor’s solution … thank you ..

Drying the baby is good for health because it can help overcome physiological jaundice, optimize growth of bones and muscles, thin the mucus in the respiratory tract, and many other benefits. However, drying the baby is certainly there are procedures. The latest advice from IDAI (Indonesian Pediatrician Association), when drying, babies are not exposed directly in the sun, but rather dried indirectly in a sunny room. The recommended duration of drying babies is between 5 to 10 minutes, 1 to 2 times a day, ie in the morning between 7 and 9, or in the afternoon between 15 and 17.
Drying the baby directly in the hot sun risks causing the baby to become dehydrated due to excessive heat exposure. Not only that, the risk of skin cancer will increase in the long run. It seems that the veins in the skin around your baby's eyes may be caused by dilation of blood vessels under the skin (telangiectasia) which may occur due to excessive heat exposure, but can also be caused by allergies and irritants, for example due to the use of soap or baby skin care products other improper ones.
Our advice, give your father a good understanding by showing scientific sources related to the danger of direct exposure to excessive sunlight in infants. If necessary, you can invite your father to consult directly to the doctor to get further explanation.
If there are no serious conditions, often, reddish veins under the skin around the eyes as your baby will improve by itself without the need for special treatment. Most importantly, always keep your baby's skin clean, use only baby skin care products that are specially formulated for babies, and dry your baby in the right way (as explained above). If the complaint does not improve, or actually extends to other areas of the skin, do not hesitate to check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician huh ..
I hope this helps.
