  • If you are breastfeeding put some breastmilk on it. Also you can put some antibiotic oitnment on it.

  • Botox....of course I am kidding! But really, why are you so concerned about his skin right now? Is his pediatrician concerned? If not, then you shouldn't be either. OR you can get a second or third opinion, or even take him to a dermatoligist...but I'd relax about it, he'll be old enough for laser reconstruction and botox in just a few short years...again..KIDDING!

  • I agree with the breastmilk. I use it for any skin issues. I even use it on my face. It works better than any medication that I have ever used.

  • Breastmilk works. I'd avoid all lotions and soaps and just let his skin be. It will heal on its own. The lotions and soaps contain chemicals that tend to just make things worse.

    If you do use something,I'd actually recommend Mother Love's "nipple cream". It works wonders on chapped dry skin, and is not just for nipples.
