Chilblain is more common in winter and early spring, and babies are more prone to chilblain because their skin dissipates heat faster, consumes more heat, has a particularly developed vascular system, and is more sensitive to changes in the temperature of the external environment; in addition, the baby’s skin moisture content is more, which is one of the reasons for the prone to chilblain.

What should babies pay attention to when they have chilblain?
Babies with chilblain are usually caused by improper nursing. It is not easy to detect chilblains where they occur. When itching and burning occur, a mild form of chilblain is formed. Now that chilblain has emerged, mothers must avoid the following three points when taking care of their babies, so as not to aggravate the situation.
1. Avoid getting warm immediately after freezing.
Close to heating immediately after exposure to cold outdoors, not only does it not alleviate frostbite, it burns already frozen-damaged skin and accelerates the severity of chilblain. It is suggested that we first move our hands and feet before heating.
2, avoid using hot water to soak your hands or feet.
After frostbite, remember not to immediately take a hot bath, soak hands and feet with hot water, this time the skin nerve sensation of frostbite weakened, rapid warming will only aggravate the injury, not conducive to recovery.
3, do not rub the baby’s frostbite frequently.
Chilblain can be rubbed, but attention should be paid to strength and rubbing can promote recovery. Remember not to knead blindly, pay attention to grasp the strength, so as not to let the damaged skin become more serious.
