  • we used eucerin intensive care (i think that's what it was called, or was it eurcerin plus?) for my dd's rash. worked wonders. we applied it 2-3x a day.

  • California baby lotion is supposed to help.

    Also try hydrocortizone cream.

  • try eliminating dairy. it is the #1 food intolerance/ allergen. my friends lo had what sounds very similar, he would get it if she had a spot of milk in her tea...he was bf, so she had to go dairy free. if you are ff, it is not too early to stop. just give your lo lots of green veggies!
