Hello, Ais Baharsyah. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of white spots on the buttocks area in infants aged 2 months can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Pityriasis versicolor (also called tinea versicolor or phlegm, caused by fungal infection of Malassezia furfur in the upper layers of the skin, symptoms: white to black brown spots, fine scales, irregular shape, firm boundaries, the most frequent location on the upper part of the chest, arms top, neck, face, to the scalp, it can be accompanied by itching) Vitiligo (abnormalities in skin staining due to lack of the hormone melanin, the cause is uncertain but is thought to be related to autoimmune and genetic, symptoms: white patches with freckle-sized spots or more , firm boundary, most frequent location in the locomotor, bone protrusion, around the lips) Pityriasis alba (symptom of oval-shaped white patches, indistinct boundary, rough scaly, flat surface, the main location is the cheeks, arms and upper body, not itching, most often occurs at age 3-16 years, associated with a history of atopy [asthma, frequent sneezing and runny nose in the morning, eyes are often red after being exposed to allergens] to the family / patient) If the complaint is felt to be so disturbing, we encourage you to have your child checked directly by a doctor or dermatologist for evaluation and given the necessary treatment. The doctor will perform anamnesis, physical examination, and support (if there are indications, for example, a skin test for allergy testing). Your doctor may give you a medicine in the form of a cream / ointment to be applied to the skin that has a complaint.
At home, you are advised to bathe, change, and wash your child's clothes regularly, not to wear clothes that are too tight, and use softer (relatively non-irritating) soaps like baby soap. To enrich insights, you can read articles about pityriasis versicolor. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
