The Growth Of Fine Hair (lanugo) On The Baby’s Forehead?

, I shaved the fine hairs on my baby’s forehead. will the fine hairs get thicker later?

1 Answer:

Hi Venty,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to clarify, how old is your baby at this time? In what ways and tools do you shave the fine hairs on your baby's forehead? Are there any complaints that your baby has after the shave?


In fact, the growth of fine hair on the baby's body, including the forehead, is not an abnormality. This is very common due to hormonal influences, both from within the baby's body itself, as well as the influence of the mother's hormones during pregnancy. This condition does not need to be treated by shaving. As the baby gets older, this hair will gradually thin out on its own.


It is feared that the fine hairs on the baby's skin will open up the pores on the baby's skin. This can make it easier for the microorganisms that cause infection to enter the skin, causing itching, redness, blisters, or even a watery, pus rash. Not only that, if you shave these fine hairs using certain chemical substances (for example, special creams or oils), your baby is prone to irritation or allergies because of it.


If your baby does not experience complaints after you shave the fine hairs on his forehead, then this is probably not dangerous. Shaving the fine hair on the baby's body will not cause the hair on his body to grow thicker. However, to avoid the risk of side effects as mentioned above, you should stop the habit of shaving the fine hair on the baby's body as you did before. Also, make sure your baby's body is always clean, namely by bathing him regularly, wearing clean clothes, and avoid contact between baby's skin with irritating substances (including powder, baby oil), so that babies avoid the risk of infection or irritation.


That's all for our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with the nearest doctor or pediatrician.


I hope this helps.
