The Skin Of A 7 Month Old Child Appears Slightly Rough After Drinking Sufor?
Hello, good afternoon …. r nI want to ask, my child was only 7 months old on the 27th yesterday. R nAnd my child was only given SUFOR without breast milk. R nDuring consuming sufor, my child’s skin likes to develop bumps -Bump and a bit rough, and after the bumps disappear, it always leaves a black mark. r nI have changed the brand of sufor several times. And the result is still the same. R nWhat I want to ask, is the bump with black marks, including allergies, what is not suitable for your SUFOR, and what foods and milk are suitable for my child. R nPlease explain r nThank you
Hello Angie, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Unsuitable formula milk is a term used to describe an allergic condition to formula milk, so they both have the same meaning. Allergies to formula milk can indeed cause symptoms such as the appearance of bumps, spots, or redness on the baby's skin. Usually these symptoms will appear as soon as your child drinks formula milk and disappear if your child does not drink formula milk that makes him allergic. Some of the other symptoms that may appear include:
Vomiting and diarrhea
Abdominal pain and flatulence
Shortness of breath and wheezing
Swelling of the mouth and tongue
Swollen, red, itchy eyes
In a case like your child where the bumps on the skin keep on disappearing and appearing, you should take your baby to the pediatrician for further examination first. The bumps on the baby's skin are not always caused by milk or the food the baby is eating. Some other possible causes include:
infection of the skin
contact dermatitis (can be allergic or irritant), for example in the use of certain types of clothing, detergents or fragrances used to wash clothes, creams or soaps used, etc.
the air is dry and too cold
By knowing exactly what caused the bumps on your child's skin, the doctor can provide appropriate therapy for your child. For example, if you are suspected of having an allergy to the formula given, the doctor may suggest another type of formula (for example, soy-based formula) to be given to your child. Switching formulas from cow's milk based to soy-based milk should not be done before consulting your pediatrician.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
