What do baby prick looks like?
Baby's sweats may be white (transparent bubbles) or have a form red little dots. The first changes are efflorescence without inflammatory features, most often they appear in 5-8 days of life in the form of numerous bubbles o about 1-2 mm diameter.
Infants' red bills are inflammatory changes, most often occurring as a result of the child's skin not being properly treated (including the use of too greasy cosmetics, e.g. olives). These changes usually appear in the recesses of the skin and all areas exposed to constant pressure: in the diaper area, under the knees, in the groin.
Fever occur most frequently in clusters, and the skin around them is slightly red. Sometimes prizes itch and bake what a child can signal through more frequent crying and irritability.
Causes of prosecution:
- overheating the child, dressing too warm,
- putting on low-quality clothes (windproof, tight)
- too high temperature in the rooms where the baby is staying,
- too high humidity
- immaturity of the sweat glands, which means that instead of being released by the glands, sweat accumulates in them and clogs them (the baby only begins to sweat over time),
- prickly heat on the cheeks of a breast-fed baby arise from the heat generated by his mother's body,
- using mattress protectors that do not allow good air permeation and promote sweat on the child's back,
- using improper care cosmetics, washing the baby too rarely.
Treatment of prosecution in children
Treating prickly heat consists primarily of preventing their formation.
Means avoiding overheating of the child. The rule should be: one coat more than an adult. However, if we go out with the baby on an extremely steamy day, a light body plus possibly socks is enough. An infant during high temperatures does not have to be protected by an additional layer of clothing.
