  • do you think it could be ezcema? I use Aquaphor for my son who has bad dry skin. it is safe for kids and can be used on the face. Did you call your Pediatritian? Maybe you can use hydrocortizone.

  • I like to use lanolin cream. You can get tubes in any baby section. The Lansinoh brand comes in a little purple tube. It is made for the nipples of breastfeeding moms, and completely safe for children to ingest. It costs about $8 a tube in CT, but is soooo worth it! It is totally natural, and works really well on rashes, irritated bums, cracked nipples, and chapped cheeks in the winter time. Don't let the price throw you off--a little goes a long way.
