The Red Birthmark On The Baby’s Face Is 2 Months Old?
Hello, I want to ask. My child is now 2 months old, on his left face there is a reddish pink mark around his eyebrows, eyes, cheeks, nose and upper lip. The reddish pink mark grew redder as she stretched, overheated and cold. And around the white eyes that sometimes appear smooth blood vessels. Guess that includes the salmon patch or port wine birthmark huh? And how to respond and deal with it? Please explain, thank you.
Sometimes there are babies who have birthmarks. Various birthmarks, some reddish, purple, blue, brown, or black. The cause of the birthmark itself is not certain. Some types of birthmarks include:
Infantile hemangiomas: reddish spots such as strawberries, sometimes can be blue or purple, patches enlarge in the first 6 months and then fade before the age of 7 years
Salmon patches: thin patches of color like salmon, often around the face and back of the neck, can fade without special handling
Port wine stain: pink patches which turn purplish red, appear on one side of the body, can be enlarged and tend to be permanent
Mongolian patches: gray blue spots that fade after 4 years
Coffee stains / cafe au lait: blots like coffee stains that can fade on their own but can darken if they are often exposed to sunlight
To be able to ensure the birthmark of your child needs to be seen firsthand yes. Handling of birthmarks will also be adjusted to the type of birthmark. Not all birthmarks require special handling. Handling will be given if the birthmark affects / interferes with vision and breathing, affects innervation, is suspected of malignancy, or is feared to interfere with the child's appearance and psychological state. Some of the handling of signs including laser, surgery, and drugs.
Therefore, I suggest that you take your child to a pediatrician or dermatologist first so that conditions can be ascertained. If necessary, the doctor can refer to other relevant parts such as the eye if birthmarks affect the eye.
Hope it helps you,
