Why do babies have impure skin - possible causes and 6 tips for improvement!

You may be surprised to find out that your newborn has skin defects at birth, such as small pimples or red patches. However, this is quite normal and there are different types of rashes that newborn babies can have. For example, neonatal acne, which is characterized by redness on the cheeks, forehead, neck, and scalp, can occur and usually appears in the second or fourth week after birth. It usually goes away on its own within weeks. Miliaria are white pimples that appear on the face and also go away on their own, while sudamina are red, white-tipped pimples that show up on the back and in the folds of the arms and legs. Milk crust or seborrheic dermatitis is a lesion located on the scalp and forehead that resembles dandruff. It's important to keep your baby's skin dry and clean it regularly, especially in the affected areas. If the rashes don't go away after a few days, see a pediatrician.

6 tips to help you improve!

  1. Use Mild Cleansers: Use mild cleansers like baby soap or shampoo to clean your newborn's skin to avoid irritation.

  2. Avoid over-washing: Excessive washing can dry out your baby's skin, making rashes worse. Wash your baby only when necessary, using warm water instead of hot water.

  3. Avoid overheating: Avoid keeping your baby in warm or humid environments as this can make the rash worse. Make sure your baby sleeps in a cool and ventilated environment.

  4. Use moisturizer: Use a mild moisturizer to hydrate your baby's skin and prevent dry skin, which can contribute to rashes.

  5. Do not use medication without medical advice: Do not use any medication, cream or ointment on your baby's skin without first consulting a pediatrician. Some medications can make the rash worse or cause an allergic reaction.

  6. Use special products for the crust: There are special products for the crust, such as special shampoos and soaps recommended by pediatricians, which help in the care and reduce the possibility of skin damage and inflammation.
