Local application of coconut oil or mustard oil or some soothing and calming lotion may provide relief in itching. Neem is one among the best blood purifier and detoxifier known to ayurveda. It enhances immune system and neem oil is an antiseptic in itself. Leaf extracts are used in antiseptics and can be effectively used in treating skin diseases. It destroys fungus and bacteria and is best for almost all kinds of skin diseases including redness of skin and itching.

Baby Rashes - Best Way To Deal With Them

Baby Rashes - Best Way To Deal With Them

As the baby enters life, he unveils a different world for himself. There is so much to see, understand, learn and experience. A baby’s life is full of exciting new experiences as he views things and people around him with curiosity. But as he fondles with things around him, he carries dust, germs and possibility of an infection. Besides the external environment, his sensitive skin also deals with 24/7 nappies that cause dampness and may lead to a fungal infection.

It is quite natural for parents to panic with the slightest of baby’s discomfort. However, it is important to note that almost all babies develop rashes with first few weeks of their life as it’s the time when their skin is adapting to the outside environment. Not all rashes are harmful. Baby’s immune system has the capacity to fight with most of the infections. Thus, many skin rashes heal on its own. In case, rashes are followed by fever, vomiting, pain or other symptoms, it is advisable to seek medical intervention immediately.

Most common rashes in children are caused due to nappies. The skin around the nappy area become red itchy and irritated. The best way to prevent nappy rashes is to keep baby’s skin clean and dry. Check for dampness and never keep the same nappy for more than 3 hours. Antifungal creams as prescribed by a pediatrician could be applied externally to fight infection.

Blocked pores on baby’s skin can cause acne as well as white spots called Milia. They can appear on face, neck, hands generally first two weeks of baby’s life. Doctors advice using a mild soap and keeping the skin moisturized.

Extreme climate can be harsh on baby’s skin. The skin reacts to dry cold winds in form of dry and scaly patches which become red and itchy. Extreme summers can cause rashes due to sweat. The only way to prevent such problems is to keep baby indoors, warm and hydrated in winter and assure baby wears soft and loose cotton clothing in summers.

Many of us have noticed flaky patches that appear on new born baby’s scalp. Those look like thick yellow secretions. They are known as cradle crap. They are not itchy or painful and heal on their own.

As baby grows, he is introduced to new foods. This is also the time when food allergies began to get recognized. Many times body reacts to an allergen through skin rashes. These are called Hives and may occur any time in child’s life. Avoidance of allergens is the most effective way to deal with food allergies.

A baby needs constant care and supervision. Parents knowledge greatly help in prevention and management of such issues. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

It's a kind of rakta' vikar caused by vitiation of pitta. Some simple remedies can set it right slowly but steadily. If followed with food protocol suggested, the correction will sustain for long time. Any allergy, subcutaneous bleeding, skin problems etc can be solved even with haridra, neem and sugarcandy (if not diabetic) preparations and some other herbs without side effects. Pl converse privately for professional advice.

Hello Doctors, My girlfriend (24 years) is experiencing itching in left breast and a tiny lump in right breast, she is about to have her period after two days, is it due to PMS or she have to go for checkup Some times a transparent white discharge comes out from nipple after squeezing the breast Please help!

MD - General Medicine, D.M. medical oncology
Oncologist, Mumbai
Dear lybrate-user I will try to answer all your queries one by one 1. Itching in the left breast is due to some local cause which can be addressed only after detailed examination by a doctor. [ most likely a non serious condition] 2. Considering her age [ 24 years] ,the tiny lump in the breast is most likely to be a non cancerous condition. It could be fibroadenoma [ a benign tumor i.e not a cancer ] which may or may not require any further therapy depending on the size and rate of growth 3.The whitish discharge she is having could be due to a medical condition called galactorrhoea [ inappropriate secretion of milk in non lactating women] due to inappropriate secretion of prolactin hormone. This symptom requires further evaluation with measurement of serum prolactin hormone to decide about further management as this condition is often found in women of this age group. I would advice you to visit a breast surgeon for evaluation of right breast lump and left breast itching and therafer after his opinion you may require an opinion from endocrinologist for the whitish discharge. Do not worry, it may seem that I have raised suspicion for two different conditions but rest assured that both the condition if found are treatable. Hope I have answered your questions.
