It should be taken care immediately with the anti-fungal medicines. A nose should be taken care after the bath using clean cotton or cloth. Sometimes, a liquid like substance may come from baby’s nose. It is common in newborn baby.

Ear and Skin Care:

Cleaning of ear is not necessary in new born baby because it will create infections sometimes. Caring of ear taken after 7 or 8 months is preferable. A new born baby doesn’t need any toiletry products like soap, shampoo, cream etc. Use of mild water in bath is good for baby’s health. Due to mosquito bites, the baby will face the redness in the skin. So, avoiding the mosquito bites is better for the skin. Shampoos should be needed in the case of having dandruff. Otherwise, it is not needed.
