Red, rough patch

Hey mummies and daddies. My LO have this red patch on his stomach. And now the whole tummy area is red. This morning when I went to change him his red patch area is kinda hot and his belly button is slightly darker. When I went for his 3months check up (2 jan) the doctor said it’s dry skin. But I’m just thinking dry skin will cause heat and redness on it? Has anyone experience this before? And how do I cure it?

My baby has it this morning too. I think its due to ruyi oilment for my case. The stomach area appeared dry and has some small bumps

Best to bring your LO to the pediatrician, do not self medicate...


My baby skin will be like that when I apply ruyi oil.
