My dd has an awful cold. Her lips and cheeks are so chapped. Does anyone know what I can put on her that will help?

I don't know if you are really supposed to but I use blistex on my son. He cries because it hurts when his lips get chapped and it works quickly and he loves it.

All my girls are dealing with this from the dry air. I use coconut oil - perfectly safe, good for their skin, and it's food so no worries if some gets in their mouth.

I make sure to slather it on before bedtime and as needed throughout the day.

I will try it. I use it on her eczema so I have some. Thank you!

I used to get this stuff at bath and body works for chapped lips and skin and it worked great!

During the winter, I put basic hand lotion onto my younger son's cheeks every night.  I keep ahead of it so he doesn't end up red and chapped like your daughter is.

Aquaphor!!!! It won't sting and if you put it on her while she's asleep it'll soak in and look so much better!!! It's next to all of the lotions and whatnot in the stores. Trust me!!
