My 4 month old son's skin is fairly dry around the cheek and forehead area and his little cheeks are so red all the time. I have heard that teething will cause redness, and he is beginning to teeth. Have any of you ladies had any experience with dry facial skin? What remedies did you use?
We just started putting baby oil in his bath and it's helping tremendously with his cradle cap and other dry skin, as well as lotion.

my son had that problem when he was a baby. we found out he is allergic to dairy. when he eats any dairy he get eczema spots, mostly on his checks. when he was a baby i thought it was just baby skin but i have had two more since him and they never had any skin issues. he also had bad cradle cap. i would rub oil into his scalp about 30 minutes before bath time. that gives the oil a chance to soak down into the cradle cap gunk and loosen it so it washes off more easily.
