  • Aveeno baby the unscented kind. It's hypoallergenic and very effective.

  • What momofone725 said is good but if she can't handle that then use Jonhson andJohnson's baby oil gel. I use is on my boys and they have sensitive skin lots of thing break them out. It also well keep her skin from being so dry.

  • AQUAPHOR very gentle and it is what my pedi said to use on ds's excema on his face because it was safest if he ate some by accident since it was on his face.

  • I would call the doctor's office. Maybe talk to one of the nurses there and ask them. They tend not to be 'pushing' one lotion over another because of deals from the maker that the doctor may be 'tied' to.

  • Melaleauca or some other natural product. You also have to look into what you are washing her clothes and blankets with that may also be irritating her.
