Hi, my baby boy is now 28 days old. i would like to ask:
1) his face and neck area have several small 'pimples'. i wondered if those were rashes though. is this normal?
Is very normal for NB.. when my boy NB... he got very bad rashes... I bring him to pediatrician to get cream.. after a few time is gone...
Hi NB having rashes on face,neck n body are common.These are we so call tai re or body heatyness from mum.Bath baby with ABC black beer,twice daily,all rashes will subside,I bath that for my baby n it works well.
oh, thanks all. wife and me were thinking if he is being kissed too much during his full month party, so got dirtied and got pimples. ha ha.
plus... there is a kid who turned up at the party yesterday, down with chicken pox today. we were worried if he will be infected... cos there r reddish pimples on his body..
My gal skin is very smooth now after the beer bath.After the bath I use Topi
-cream,an ultra-moisturer recommended by pediatrician.
i feel that there is NO NEED to do anything extra. my pediatrician refuse to give us any cream cos he said that this type of rashes is very common, not skin problem, not ezcema. just continue to wipe baby with cool boiled water and the rashes will subside on its own. true enough, the rashes slowly subside at 4mth old. dear son NB rashes was very bad but we didnt do anything more than cleaning his face few times per day. UNLESS your baby's 'pimples' has pus, then need to bring to pediatrician for a check, if not, dont have to wry =)
as for chk pox, you have to observe. if is really chk pox, usually is whole body and will develop a fever.
Chicken pox spots will start on the torso & spread outwards.
Also monitor baby for any signs of fever.
But as there isn't any medication for infants, even if it does happen... pediatrician can only prescribe calamine lotion.
we kiss my dear daughter everyday, day in day out, especially if i'm carrying her, her face will be so close i can't help but keep smooching on her every few mins.. LOL!
she kisses all my family members and even her sch teacher.. but it's only close family members like my mum n bro n BF that gets to kiss her on her lips..
That why i hug her tight tight instead as she luv this kind of feeling and will laugh when i do that .
It's the hormones that baby gets from mother while in the womb. Goes away after a couple of weeks, nothing to worry about
