  • if he got moisture trapped between the pacifier and his skin while sleeping or something, it could just be chapped.

    because it's around his mouth, I wouldn't use lotion since you aren't supposed to eat it and it can get easily transfered into his mouth.

    try using chapstick or other lip treatment for dry, chapped lips and just put it around his mouth where the irritation is.

  • I agree, it sounds chapped. Get a really good lotion like Eucrin. Gently rub a little bit in the area then put on a thin coat of vaseline. The vaseline will trap moisture in his skin and will block his spit from his skin.
