my baby is nine months old... she has a soreness behind the neck region since three weeks... its almost red in colour... but she has no pain while bathing or dressing... what should i do for the same... she has a weight of 10 kg. and some sort of dryness is also seen on her legs... will worse on A/c rooms... milestones are normal...
The painless red coloured soreness in the neck for three weeks should not be a cause for worry. Nevertheless, it is better to get it examined to find a cause for it. In a younger infant it could have been explained because of the lying position but in your child's case the child would be sitting or even standing most of the time.
The air in an airconditioned room is usually dry and can cause dryness of the skin. You can relieve it by applying bland oil once or twice a day.
I hope I have cleared your doubts to your satisfaction.
Your chid"s weight is OK.
He probably has early infantile eczema-consult a dermatologist.
Regarding neck sore it may be the same problem and also see that milk does not leak around his neck when swallowing-keep the neck creases clean and dry
