What should I buy for my 13 month old who just has dry skind on her face?

The baby lotions just seem to make it worse, is there another cream I can put on her that wont irratate her eyes cause I have to rub it all over her face?

  • My daughters dermatologist reccomended CeraVe. We get the cream since it is thicker. I get it at CVS. I suppose any pharmacy or maybe wal mart will have it. It's pretty pricy but it works wonders for her and it is unscented.

  • I'm not sure if you can use it on a toddler's face, but Cetaphil works well.

  • my son had very bad eczema so I did a oatmeal bath with some get olive oil, more pricey. They make olive oil soaps as well if you would like something cheaper with the same effect. I used this on my son regularly instead of the johnson and johnson and other products and it worked like a charm for him. As far as lotions my doctor prescribed him a medicated lotion but told me to cetaphil works just as well but isnt as potent.

  • Aquafor always a go-to in our house, its so sticky it wont smudge all over and does a great job of clearing up skin irritations anywhere! You can get it at Walgreens.
