White Lump In Baby Diapers Of A 2-month-old Boy?
I want to ask, my son is 2 months old, 16 days, I have changed his pants 2x, how come there is a whitish lumpy, but a little … what is that about? my children rarely use pempers at least once a day, sometimes they never run smoothly and a lot, my child is full of breast milk … Thanks in advance
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of white lumps in baby diapers can be caused by the following factors:
Dirt (such as smegma, residual soap that is not rinsed clean, dead skin cells that accumulate, remaining powder, or other dirt that sticks to the baby's diaper)
Urinary tract infection
Genital infections, for example due to fungi, bacteria, or parasites
Side effects of certain drugs consumed
Urinary fistula, and so on
The white lumps that your baby is experiencing may or may not be dangerous, depending on the underlying cause. Frequently, if the lump appears occasionally, without any unpleasant odor, itching, swelling, redness, urination or bulging disorders, fussy children, or other complaints, this condition is not dangerous. Clots like these will generally disappear by themselves after your baby is circumcised.
However, to be sure, it would not hurt you to check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that it can be further inspected as to what the exact characteristics of the lump and what is also the condition of the genitals at this time. If necessary, the doctor may direct your baby to undergo a urine test, or other supporting tests.
In the meantime, the best thing to do is:
Keep giving the baby ONLY breast milk until she is 6 months old
Always keep the intimate organs clean well
When bathing a baby, use only special baby bathing products, then rinse thoroughly with good quality water so that no more remains on the surface of the skin
Only wear clothing that is soft, absorbs sweat, and is not tight on the baby
Do not carelessly give powder, oil, or any substance around the baby's sex organs
Avoid holding the baby's intimate organs with dirty hands
Hope this helps ...
