There Is A Bump On The Baby’s Face And The Baby’s Skin Is Exposed To Hot Objects?
Hello, I want to ask. In my 7-month-old child, there is a bump on my face like the picture. This bump initially appeared 1 at around the 5th month. But lately it has increased. What’s the cause? and what is the medicine?
Thank you for the question.
Crashes on the baby's face can be many possible causes, for example prickly heat, skin tags, folliculitis, impetigo, scabies, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, insect bites, hyperkeratosis, fungal infections, chicken pox, and so on. Unfortunately, we cannot access the image that you included, so it is difficult for us to identify the exact characteristics of the bump.
In line with this, contact with hot objects to the baby's skin can cause mild to severe burns. In minor burns that do not involve a large surface of the skin, often this condition can improve considerably with treatment at home. Conversely, if burns that occur involve tissue damage that is deep or extensive, of course self-treatment alone is not enough to overcome it.
Regarding the condition of your baby, we recommend that you go see it directly to the doctor, pediatrician, or dermatologist yes. Further examination will be done by the doctor so that he can give him the right treatment.
In the meantime, you can try first:
Do not carelessly squeeze or slash the bumps that appear on the baby's face. Do not handle burns, especially with dirty hands. Keep your baby's skin always clean, including by regularly bathing it, wearing him clean and soft clothing, and avoiding him from exchanging personal items with others Clean the burns on the baby's hands using sterile gauze soaked with NaCl liquid. Don't carelessly give any medication to the bumps and burns on the baby's skin without the advice of a doctor.
