Use Of Salicylic Acid Powder For 4-month Babies?
I want to ask if salicyl kf powder is allowed for 4-month babies?
Hello Mrs. Diana Saggiita Thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Basically salicyl powder is powder containing as much as 2% salicylic acid which is inhibiting the growth of bacteria, fungi, and can help release dead skin and increase skin moisture. Salicyl powder is generally used to treat skin disorders such as itching due to prickly heat, which is reddish and feels itchy and uncomfortable.
For babies who are still young, their skin condition is still very sensitive, so it is easy to hypersensitivity to the active substance in the salicyl powder. Although salicyl powder is actually relatively safe to use, it should be noted if someone has several conditions such as:
hypersensitivity to salicylic acid
hypersensitivity to talk
have sensitive skin conditions
very dry skin
there is an infection or open wound on the skin.
We do not recommend and do not prohibit, only it would be better if you should consult directly with your doctor to examine your baby, so that the actual condition is known. It's better if you do some things now, like:
avoid air that is too hot and humid. If you use a fan inside the house, do not direct it directly to your baby's body. And make sure the fluid intake for the baby, so as not to become dehydrated.
Choose clothes that can absorb your child's sweat, and avoid clothes made from synthetic fabrics such as polyester and nylon, and choose clothes made from cotton
reduce holding the baby, because when held, the baby's body will be close to your body which is basically hot, so it will cause sweat on the baby
cool the baby's skin with sweat using a cool, damp cloth. or you can bathe it and let the baby's skin dry on its own without using a towel
Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
