The Relationship Between Excess Saliva With Bouncy Skin?
Hello, want to ask, my child’s skin (1 year 2 month) his left hand bouncy red watery. Then the droplets become excessive the next day. Is there a connection? Or drool is caused by the top teeth that want to grow?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Hypersalivation or excessive salivation is considered normal if it occurs in children up to age 2 years. This is because infants and young children do not have good control for swallowing and the muscles in the oral cavity. After more than 24 months of age these controls are generally better.
This is not related to a history of previous skin infections or when you are teething. If after 4 years the child still has symptoms of hypersalivation then it is necessary to suspect another problem. Causes of abnormal hypersalivation include:
1. Cerebral palsy
2. Neurodegenerative diseases
3. Vitamin B3 deficiency
5. Oral infections
7. Drug effects
That's all, hope you can help.
