White Spots Appear Like Phlegm On The Forehead Of A 2 Month Old Baby?
I want to ask what is the solution for babies aged 2 months 3 weeks who suddenly have a white color like tinea versicolor on his forehead ??
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
White spots on the forehead (forehead) of babies can be caused by several possibilities, such as:
1. Pythiriasis Alba
It is a skin patch that often occurs in children, in the form of round, white, non-itchy, scaly lesions. Usually these spots will go away on their own. These patches can affect the face, upper arms, neck, or shoulders.
2. Tinea versicolor
Or so-called panu. Usually affects the upper body in adults. Caused by the fungus Malassezia furfur. Characterized by white scaly patches and itching sensation.
Well-defined white patches, due to loss of pigment in the skin. Usually on the face around the eyes and mouth. Is an acquired skin disorder, not congenital.
To ensure a white spot on your child's forehead, you should take him to a dermatologist for a physical examination so that the diagnosis is more accurate.
If the white patches are pityriasis alba, they will disappear on their own within a few months.
