What kind of conditions can a baby’s skin have?
Most scratches or wounds they will have no more complications and they will leave with the passage of time and due care. However, it is important to know which ones are the most common in order to treat them properly.
The usual is to find irritations of the diaper line. This may be because the diaper is too tight, the baby has been using it for a long time, or a minor allergy. In addition, in the butt area, some conditions due to feces or urine may also arise.
Likewise, when they grow up, sometimes around the mouth some irritations may appear due to teething.
It is also common for some babies to suffer from dry skin, especially those who were born a few days later than planned. These skins will be a little more scaly than normal, but this is generally not a cause for concern, as the dermis underlying dryness is usually healthy and soft.
