Parents’ concern for the baby’s health is a natural phenomenon. Everyone wants and does everything possible to ensure that their baby has good health and smooth, smooth skin. Baby acne is one of the skin conditions that can cause an unpleasant appearance for the baby.
Generally, baby acne is the result of hormones from the mother that are transmitted to the bay during pregnancy. However, this acne does not appear after three to four weeks after birth. Hormones transmitted by the mother trigger the production of oils and lead to the development of acne. The use of certain medications can be the factor behind the appearance of baby acne in some cases. Contact with saliva or milk from the affected area can make the baby’s acne condition worse. Crying, which is natural in babies, increases blood flow to the skin. Such increased blood flow can cause irritation to the baby’s skin.
There are some remedies such as washing the affected area with mild soap and water that are traditionally used to relieve baby acne. You must understand that acne is caused by clogged pores due to accumulation of dead cells and excess oil. Never use harsh soaps or scrubs to clean your baby’s face. It could aggravate the condition. Using warm water can help to some extent.
There are some over-the-counter medications available to treat baby acne. However, it is advisable to consult your healthcare provider before using such medications, as selecting the wrong medication can lead to certain skin disorders.
The use of colloidal silver products is considered one of the safe remedies for treating baby acne. The silver particles in colloidal silver products disinfect the area and kill the bacteria that are the main cause of acne in babies. Most importantly, the silver particles kill only infected tissues without damaging other tissues or body systems. Colloidal silver is available in solution form. Colloidal silver is usually applied topically to baby acne. As the microorganisms present in baby acne come into contact with the colloidal silver product, the silver particles in the product kill the bacteria by attacking the enzymes (necessary for the growth of the bacteria). As a result of this attack, the microorganisms suffocate and die. These dead organisms are then eliminated through the lymphatic system.
