How can I clear up a drool related rash around my son's mouth?

My son has been drooling excessively due to teeth, but now since he cut teeth, he has this red blotchy rash around his mouth. I took away the pacifier and I try to keep him as dry as possible around his mouth, but i was wondering if there was a cream or a home remedy to clear it up. The skin is beginning to flake in some areas.

  • We had the same problem but not as bad. My parents had a rough time with my sisters face getting chapped like that. She'd suck and lick her lips constantly. It was an ongoing battle for them. They used chapstick around her mouth and it helped.
