White Spots On Newborns?
, my child is less than a week old but white spots appear on the face especially the forehead, cheeks and nose are they dangerous and how are they handled? thank you
Hello Donny, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The prominent white spots on the baby's face are called milia. Milia can appear at any age, but most often appear on the newborn's face. The emergence of milia is caused by dead skin cells trapped near the surface of the skin. The emergence of this condition cannot be prevented and no specific therapy is also needed to remove this white spot. Milia is harmless, does not cause certain symptoms in infants and will go away on its own within a few weeks to several months.
For now there is nothing you need to do to the white spots on your baby's face. This condition is a very normal condition. If there are other symptoms that make you worry, you can also consult directly with your pediatrician.
