My ds3 has a patch of dry skin around his upper nose and under his eyes. Should I use baby lotion or would that be too oily? What do u suggest?

I feel like I'm always quoting you, Angie, but we always have the same ideas! LOL

Yes, coconut oil is GREAT! Plus it smells good and it's natural/healthy.

Coconut oil works well because it is natural AND gets absorbed quickly, I use it on my own skin. Otherwise I would say maybe Aquafor.

I would use Avenno or some type of exema cream.

Voconut oil or cocoa butter.

My ds is 7 and has it on his elbows. We've been using those for over a year. No change. The dr suggested cetaphil, and ds said it burns bad :/

Cetaphil is what I was going to recommend too. I use it on my sons arms, which are very dry and prickly. It's also my face cream...works wonders! Get the Cetaphil cream. It comes in a jar.

Celaphil has wool product in it and it rough to little baby and kids. My son has Axema. And his demerologist recommended vaniplay. It works great.
