i had diabetic when i m pregnant.
There could be several, or many reasons for this, but one is that a low white blood cell count will cause a child or adult, a very hard time warding off infections and keeping well... Is there fever with these minor abrasions, cuts, scratches... the puss is the natural way of the body releasing toxins so that is a good thing... how long does the lil one feel bad? Does she lay down immediately, does it effect her eating? There may be another infection brewing within the system that you may not be aware of and need to have that checked by your pediatrician, or the doctor that delivered her... very important, with that because I have found that having a doctor that is familiar with you, your medical history and knows the child from birth, can better ascess the situation... There is also anemia and or low iron deficiency,none of these are really life threatening and all can be treated... I wish you luck, hope to hear from you again soon... I just love babies... had 3 of my own... I understand your worry... speak with a physician asap... ok... god bless blaze22
as a child I had some of these things and I was sent to a doctor who specialized with Infectious Disease Care, he was able to make a diagnosis, able to treat and get things under control, It might just be that taking the child to a doctor who could think about ordering certain tests that others might not order might just give you some answers and resolution
You need to have your daughter evaluated by her pediatrician. Like Blaze said, she may have low white blood cells or she may have something going on with her immune system. Her immune system is what fights infection and it sounds like hers may not be working as good as it should. There can be many reasons for this. I would start first with her pediatrician and tell him/her about her history of all her cuts becoming infected. Take her to see the pediatrician the next time it happens but dont wait too long. If the Dr can see the infection that would be great but I would have her evaluated soon so she doesnt get an infection that gets so bad her body becomes overwhelmed. That could be very dangerous, even deadly. I dont mean to scare you I just want to have you understand that something like this should be checked out right away before it has a chance to become that serious.
Make sure when she is cut that you carefully clean the area with soap and water and make sure to keep the area clean while it is healing. Be sure you wash your hands with soap and water (using a lot of friction by rubbing your hands together with the soap and rinse clean) before you treat her wounds. Dry your hands with a clean towel. When you clean her wounds make sure you use clean cloths to wash and dry her wounds as well. Dont use a towel that has been hanging about the bathroom that everyone has dried on. Good hygiene is very important especially if one has a problem with their immune system. Talk to her pediatrician so they can find out why she gets infections so easily!
