The skin of the babies is very soft and tender, like velvet. Unfortunately, it is excessively susceptible to various, even inoffensive to the adult human influences of the environment. Often on the skin of the baby, there are all sorts of irritations: acne, a small rash, local redness or pink spots. The most common reaction of the baby's skin to external factors is sweating. It is the "answer" of the skin to overheating: at a high temperature in the room or excessive amounts of clothing on the child, secretion of sweat increases.This mechanism is necessary in order to prevent overheating of internal organs. But the sweat glands do not cope with the increased load and do not have time to allocate the entire amount of sweat. As a result, a stagnant phenomenon develops, manifested as inflammation and skin irritation. The most common are the swings in newborns.
