Having children must of course be extra attention. Sometimes the slightest sign of a health problem will make parents worried. One of the conditions that make your little one uncomfortable is an allergic reaction. Symptoms or signs of allergies in babies themselves also take various forms.

The pediatrician at Tzu Chi Hospital, dr. Rose Chen, explained that babies are more prone to allergies than others. Because the baby in the mother's womb is very sterile, clean, and hygienic. When the baby is born, it is exposed to the surrounding environment. "Such as dust, changes in the weather and all of them create a trigger for allergies to the skin and respiratory tract," explained dr. Rose.

Allergies that occur in infants also have levels, namely mild, moderate and severe. dr. Rose explained that severe allergies usually involve the respiratory tract so that the baby's breath sounds like "grok-grok" and you should immediately check your child's condition to the hospital.

There are several types of allergies that often appear in babies, such as respiratory allergies, food allergies, eye allergies and skin allergies. In skin allergies, about 50% of these skin allergies usually appear in infancy. Skin allergies in infants are characterized by redness of the skin, reddish nodules, red rashes, prominence and swelling. Skin allergies occur on the face, scalp, elbows, knees and even the area of ​​​​diaper use.

“No less important thing that often happens is diapers. So, wearing the wrong diaper, changing the duration of the wrong diaper, sometimes causes allergies in the diaper area. It's called diaper rash,” explained dr. Rose.

According to dr. Rose, the risk of diaper rash increases if the baby has sensitive skin. Coupled with the selection of inappropriate diapers to the duration of use that is too long and rarely changed. In addition, dr. Rose also mentioned that diaper material that doesn't absorb sweat can make your little one's skin moist and trigger diaper rash.

“For example, if the choice of material is not very good for absorption, of course it is moist, well, this moist surface of the diaper makes the baby's skin that is in direct contact with the diaper moist too. There is an infection, and finally, there are symptoms such as redness, pain, itching,” said dr. Rose.

Anti-Clumping and SAP-Made Diapers Can Reduce the Risk of Skin Allergies in Babies

The recommended diaper that has been proven to be able to lock fluids optimally is MAKUKU Air Diapers Slim which uses a SAP core structure or super absorbent polymer. Thin MAKUKU Air Diapers Slim is only 1.6 mm and has many advantages compared to other diapers. Includes side leak proof, 3D structured diaper surface, has two-way air circulation, urine indicator and a "U"-shaped design on the front rubber specifically to protect the newborn's navel or newborn.

Other diapers still use a mixture of pulp. Where the absorption of the diaper is not optimal, it makes the diaper easy to clump, and the surface of the diaper is moist. Moisture on the surface of the diaper is what causes allergies to the baby's skin.
