Looking for Advice on Infant Skincare

My 5 month old daughter is very chubby and has very red, chaffed skin on the back of her knees. I'm sure it's because her legs are so chubby, but I can't find anything that helps it. I've tried Aquaphor, Vaseline, A&D, baby oil - nothing works. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks!!

Looking for a Shampoo for My Toddler with Ezcema

My 24 month old daughter was diagnosed with ezcema about 9 months ago. She gets a rash on her face, which doesn't itch her at all. Her rear end and head itch her pretty bad, but she doesn't get the rash there. She has a lot of hair so it doesn't work to rub something into her scalp. I use Aquaphor on her face and rear end and that seems to help, but I can't find a shampoo that doesn't make her itch. Any suggestions?

Aquaphor & Mylanta for Diaper Rash????

I read in either Parents or Babytalk that you can use a mixture of Eucerin Aquaphor and Mylanta on diaper rash and that it works great. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm about at my wits end with a never ending diaper rash on my daughter. It will go away for a day or two and then comes right back.

What Products to Use for an Infant Who Has a Rash

Hi I was wondering what products many of you recommend for an infant (2 month old) who has a very bad sandpaper like rash all over her body. Her back is actually peeling today since her skin has been so dry. I did take her to her Pediatrician who ruled out any illness. He stated it may be sensitive skin or she may be having a reaction to a food that I am eating as she also has very bad reflux along with it. I use dreft detergent on all clothes/linens that come into contact with her. I use Eucerin on her skin which does seem to help a...

In and Out of the Hospital with 13 Month Old

I have a 13 month old son who has had lots of problems with asthma. The first time he was hospitalized for it he was only 7 weeks old and it has been an on going battle ever since. For the past month and a half now we have been in and out of children’s hospital and it took them until this past Wednesday to finally figure out what was wrong. It turned out that he has a sever sinus infection and from all of the steroids that he has been on it shut down his immune system and caused it to spread to his lungs. I feel like everytime we are in...

Raw Spots After a Diaper Rash.

My 14 month old had a diaper rash that has cleared up, but she still has several red raw spots we can't get to go away. We're using Aquaphor, Butt Paste, and sun through the window when we can (she doesn't stay still long enough). We do cloth diapers and change her frequently to get the wet off, but they're not healing. Any recommendations?! Thanks so much!

Super Dry Skin During Pregnancy - Cocoa Butter? Coconut Oil? Anything Richer?

HI Moms: I'm 6 months pregnant with baby #2, and although cocoa butter seemed to make my belly happy for pregnancy #1, it doesn't seem to be doing the job anymore. My skin is literally peeling off and getting scaly in patches! Happily, no stretch marks on the belly, but is this the precursor? I've heard that coconut oil is supposed to be even better from my friends who are devotees of Whole Foods, but would love any advice on how not to become a molting snake!

Aquaphor, Eczema and Bum Genius Diapers

My son has severe eczema on his entire body and sometimes we are applying Aquaphor 3 times (or more) a day.

My son does not have a reaction to the diapers. It is more the issue of the diapers having a reaction to the creams I am using on his skin. Any suggestions? 1.

2 Year Old Suffering from Eczema What Works for Treatment

my 2 year old has suffered from eczema since he was a baby and I am just wondering what others moms have tried that provides relief.If there is a specific suncreen too that would be great. I am currently using a percription strength ointment for flare ups and aquaphor and aveeno baths, I am wondering if I should be making an appointment to see the dermatologist for him or the allergist.

Foot Care for Moms

Summer is almost here and as soon as I start wearing the cute sandals and flip flops my feet and especially heels get sooo dry and cracked.

I have a bunch of creams and lotions, I know there are tons more out there that I haven't tried. I have the pumice and I currently try to put lotion on right after the shower and before bed (with socks if it is cool enough). Anybody have a...

Skin Care Problems for Mom

Before I had my daughter I had great skin that needed very little work done to it. Now that I've had her I swear the total chemistry of my skin has changed! I'm having oily & dryness along with random breakouts. I don't know much about skin care due to being so lucky early on in life. I've already wasted close to $100 trying different products. I've tried Biore, Mary Kay, Noxema & Proactive. I have really sensitive skin so the Proactive & Noxzema turned me bright red and made my skin super sensitive. The Biore just made me break...

My 21 month old boy has this large red rash on his bum/lower back.

The red areas are slightly raised and some areas are peeling. We are letting him run around with out his diaper as much as possible and we use Seventh Generation diapers so I know it isn't a sensitivity to his diaper.

2 Year Old with Cold and a Rash

My 2 year has had a cold for the past few days. She's been sneezing and rubbing her eyes a lot, and nose is very runny. Today she has developed a rash on her neck and chest. Could this be something other than a cold? The rash is very itchy, I put some aquaphor on it which helped a little. She is overall just stuffy and very cranky. I'm debating if we should go to urgent care (would possibly have to wait a couple hours for doctor to say she has a cold!)

Potty Training Q

My 2 1/2 year old son is not telling me when he poops - and my semse of smell seems to have decreased since I had Bronchitis, and I can't smell the poops the way I used to.

I am at a loss as to how best to handle this! We talk about how he needs to tell me when he poops so he doesn't get a rash, but he still won't tell me. The other day I let...

Need Advice on a Skin Rash

My son is 14 months old & last night in the hour between dinner & bath I noticed that he had a really distinct raised, warm red rash around his mouth where his binki had been. I assumed that maybe I hadn't rinsed it off well at the last washing & he was just reacting to soap on the binki so I cleaned him well in the tub & applied a lot of aquaphor. Went to bed & when he woke up this morning the rash was much worse (even though he spits the binki out after he is asleep) & his eyes were very swollen & red, warm ringed as well as his mouth. ...

Causes of Diaper Rash

Hi! My son recently turned one and has started having problems with developing diaper rash. Up until now, we haven't had too much of a problem with this but recently it has become an ongoing issue. I always change his diaper as soon as I know that it is soiled so I don't think this is the issue. I have talked to his peditrician about what could be causing the flare ups and was told that it could be a reaction to something that he is eating. He informed me the only way to find out which food was causing the reaction was to start all...

My daughter (7 mos) is on an antibiotic that the doc told me would probably give her diarrhea...well it did and now her little bottom is all red.

Today I have been using aquaphor, but then I decided to try the desitin again just in case it was a fluke..it wasn't, she screamed and kicked until I wiped it off. I've been putting aquaphor on it again, but she is stll all red. Has this ever...

Hi moms... I have a almost three year old who still drools quite a bit and he is not teething. It wouldn't bother me so much except now that the weather has turned so cold and dry he has some pretty bad eczema under his mouth which looks painful. He had a speech eval earlier this year and the therapist commented about his drooling and suggested we go to an ENT and now his pediatrician has suggested we go see and ENT. I am going to make the appointment, but was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what was done about it. ...
