Children’s rash is more common in 6-18 months of the baby, rare after 3 years old, spring and autumn rainy season, no gender differences.
2. The baby’s resistance is low.
Babies under one year old are not fully developed and have poor resistance to diseases. Especially after 6 months, the level of anti infective substances such as antibodies from the mother and nutrients such as iron decreased slowly, while the ability of the baby to synthesize antibodies was not perfect. Therefore, the baby’s ability to resist infectious diseases gradually declines, and it is easy to suffer from various infectious diseases, especially the common cold and fever.
