Skin Problems Your Baby May Suffer From!

MD - Dermatology, MBBS

Skin Problems Your Baby May Suffer From!

The skin of a newborn baby is very fragile. It is thin and has low pigmentation. It takes quite some time (about a year) for the epidermis to develop and function effectively. Once the baby turns one, the skin gets thicker and more immune to skin problems. Here are some common skin problems found in almost every infant.

1 Diaper rash
Diaper rash is the development of red and inflamed skin in the area under the diaper. It is recommended to check the diaper for any wetness at regular intervals, and to change it when required. The diaper should not be too tight or left on too long. Applying a diaper rash ointment and keeping the area dry and open whenever possible can help in relieving your baby from the problem.

2 Baby acne
Development of acne/pimples on the skin of an infant is a common occurrence. It is advised to not to apply anything on it. It mostly resolves on its own in a couple of days.

3 Prickly heat
Prickly heat rashes are the rashes which develop on the face, neck, back or the bottom of the baby because of heat. To deal with this situation you should try to keep the infant cool and dry (not let him/her sweat) and ensure that they wear loose and comfortable clothes made of cotton.

4 Seborrhea
Rashes that develop on the scalp, eyebrows, cheeks, chest, and/or neck of a newborn baby (up to 6 months), are known as seborrhea. It appears to be gruesome, but does not bother the baby. It is recommended to use mild baby shampoo and creams to get rid of the problem. If there is no improvement, see a dermatologist.

5 Eczema
20% of the babies suffer from a very itchy skin rash known as 'eczema'. The affected area of the skin may turn red, ooze pus or crust over. It can be a result of an irritation caused due to sweating in a hot weather or due to the drying up of skin in a cold weather. Some clothing, specifically wool can even trigger this skin condition in a baby. A dermatologist or a pediatrician should be consulted in order to know what should be done.

My baby boy is 2 months old. Now a days he is not sleeping well. And his weight is 5 kg now. 3.4 kg is his birth weight. I'm in doubt that is my milk is sufficient for him. Please let me know.

The weight should be around 5.6 kg. But 5 kg is not bad. Do not worry mothers milk is never insufficient. Peoples wrong advice makes it insufficient and that too in mothers mind. If the child gains atleast 15gms/day than do not worry. Also if the child passes 6-7 times urine and goes back to sleep after feeding than he is fine and geting enough milk. Always feed and empty one breast fully before going to another breast as the breast foremilk is rich in water and the hind milk is rich in protein and fat. Happy Feeding.

The Growing Child: 1 to 3 Months

How much will my baby grow? 

While all babies may grow at a different rate, the following indicates the average for boys and girls 1 to 3 months of age:

  • Weight: average gain of about 1½ to 2 pounds each month

  • Height: average growth of over 1 inch each month

  • Head size: average growth of about ½ inch each month

What can my baby do at this age?

As your baby begins to grow, you will notice new and exciting abilities that develop. Babies at this age begin to relax the tight muscle tone of newborns and begin extending their arms and legs more. While babies may progress at different rates, the following are some of the common milestones your baby may reach in this age group:

  • Some of the newborn protective reflexes begin to disappear

  • Neck muscles become stronger, head bobs then is held erect

  • Turns head from side to side when placed on belly

  • Brings hands or objects to mouth

  • Looks at hands

  • Follows light, faces, objects

  • Listens to sounds

  • Opens and closes hands

  • Holds, then drops a rattle or other object

  • Active leg movements

  • At the end of 3 months:

    • Raises head and chest when placed on belly

    • Beginning to reach hands to objects, may bat at hanging object with hands

What can my baby say?

It is very exciting for parents to watch their babies become social beings that can interact with others. While every baby develops speech at his or her own rate, the following are some of the common milestones in this age group:

  • Begins to imitate some sounds (coos, vowel sounds)

  • Cries become more purposeful and are different for hunger, fatigue, and other needs

What does my baby understand?

A baby's understanding and awareness of the world around him or her increases during this time. While babies may progress at different rates, the following are some of the common milestones in this age group:

  • Knows familiar voices, especially of mother and father

  • Smiles in response to others

  • Responds to social contact, may coo

  • Moves arms, legs, body in rhythm with other's voice

How to help increase your baby's development and emotional security

Young babies need the security of a parent's arms, and they understand the reassurance and comfort of your voice, tone, and emotions. Consider the following as ways to foster emotional security of your newborn:

  • Hold your baby face to face and make eye contact.

  • Talk to your baby with a soothing, animated voice throughout the day while dressing, bathing, feeding, or playing with your baby.

  • Sing to your baby.

  • Give your baby rattles and soft toys with different sounds.

  • Let your baby hear different sounds (for example, wind chime, ticking clock, soft music, or music box).

  • Show your baby bright pictures of black and white images.

  • Hang a mobile with bright objects above your baby.

  • Call your baby by name.

  • Hold your baby during feedings and provide comfort when he or she is distressed and cuddling when happy.

Please help in suggesting what to feed for iron requirement to my 11 month old baby?
Normal home cooked food without spices in semi solid form should be given in routine. Emphasize on green vegetables. You can add jaggery. Pomegranate juice will help for more iron (if actually needed. Supplement may be given.

Firstly you need to find out the cause of bleeding from nose. There are various minor to major causes of bleeding from nose. So accordingly we can plan further line of treatment. Food has no relation with bleeding from nose.
