My poor 6 month old daughter has been sick for the past 3 weeks. First she had RSV then she got an ear infection and then she got congested again. On top of that she is teething. She sucks on her hands and it causes the skin around her cheeks to break down from the moisture. We have tried Vaseline, neosporin, and Eucerin on her cheeks and nothing seems to help. She is miserable and she scratches at her face . I cut her nails and the hand mittens don't stay on. I even tried putting socks on her hands and she rips them off. Nights are pure hell. She wakes up every hour screaming and my husband and I can't calm her down and she won't nurse. She isn't as bad during the day. What is wrong with her and what else can I do? She is on antibiotics and motrin. Is that hurting her stomach?Answer Question
