The skin on my 19mth old sons feet are peeling and it itches. I've been using eucerin calming cream, but he's still having problems. Anyone ever deal with this?

  • He must have sweaty feet. My neice who is the same age is also having this prob. Try baby gold bond. You can get it in the cream or powder.

  • Sounds like athletes foot to me. Does he wear plastic/rubber shoes? Crocs are horrible for that.

  • yes it seems to be working. I used lotrimon on my boys. it is also great for diaper rash. Give the cream a try.

  • Sounds like a fungus of some sort like maybe athletes foot. I would take him into the pedi so he can get prescribed a cream that will make it go away fast.
