  • Aquaphor made by Eucerin is great. I used it for excema and any type of little rash they had. It is a great product!

  • And that huge $16 little tub looking thing it comes in lasts forever.

  • I used to love Aquaphor, but some times it can make rashes worse by clogging the pores. I would recommend coconut oil.

  • Wouldn't using oil clog the pores too? I've used this little stick made by Johnson and Johnson, it's for chapped cheeks.

  • coconut oil or olive oil. I would stay away from the petroleum byproducts.

  • Wash with a mild soap, like Baby Phisoderm or Ivory. Then apply a litlle bit of Aquaphor. A little goes a very long way. My sons doc had me do this when he broke out with baby acne.

  • it could be pimples...if its just red id stay away from oily products and try something dryer. Maybe wash his face better. Do you breastfeed? If it is a rash it could be a reaction to soemthing YOU ate!
