  • keep cleaning her face and try to keep it dry. I would wash my sons face offten, pat dry and put chapstick allover. it seem to help some.

  • Vaseline helps a lot with chapped face for whatever reason. My daughter is a drool machine (still, at 17 months) and has lots of colds and ear infections -- lots of nose wiping. A little vaseline on the affected area, especially before bed, helps a lot.

  • I used vaseline too. I put it on 3-5 times every day when the drooling was bad.

  • I use this stuff called baby kisses. It is be the company that makes butt paste. It works wonders or at least it did with my daughter.

  • I've been told that the trick is to make sure the skin is completely dry before you put the Vaseline on.
