Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
It needs to be explored further about the redness condition in your child. It is important to know since when the reddish condition of the neck appears, what are the trigger factors (use of powder or skin products, post-fever, friction due to wounds), other symptoms experienced besides red tinting (fever, pain, itching, peeling of the skin, filled with resilience fluids), whether skin lesions appear on other body parts, history of similar diseases, history of allergies, history of treatment that has been done to treat symptoms.
The skin becomes erect and reddish in color can be caused by several medical conditions, including atopic dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, miliaria, viral infections in related skin parts such as herpes, fungal infections in areas related to skin lesions. It is advisable to consult with a pediatrician regarding further examination and management of your child's condition. The treatment will be adjusted to medical conditions that cause redness, lead to your child's skin.
It is recommended not to use self-medication without doctor's instructions, maintain the cleanliness of your child's skin by bathing your child regularly, avoid using powder in the reddish area, avoid scratching the reddish part, making sure your child still gets enough nutrition from breast milk.
Hopefully this information can help you,
