Suggestions for Dry Skin

I have really bad dry winter skin... my hands are always dry and what's worse is my face is very dry and flaky. I put lotion on it all the time but I have that dry flaky skin (especially on my chin) that lotion doesn't seem to get rid of. I think I need an exfoliant to remove the dead skin and I was looking to get suggestions for something inexpensive or homemade.

Good Moisturizer for Rosacea?

Hi moms, Does anyone know of any good moisturizers for people with rosacea? My husband has rosacea and doesn't like to use prescription face products and did really like Purpose Redness Reducing Moisturizer, but they stopped making it.

Hypoallergenic Hair Products

I am very sensitive to dyes and fragrances and have to use lotions, soaps, and detergents that are hypoallergenic. I have tried several different shampoos and conditioners, but I haven't been able to find anything that doesn't irritate my scalp. I've tried Dove, Aveda, and more! Any suggestions? I have semi thick and wavy hair that I usually flat iron, so conditioner is a must. Thanks!

Skin Tag on Ear

Hi Mamas, My 19 month old son was born with a skin tag on his ear. I consulted with an ENT today, and he said it was a routine procedure to remove it, however, required my son to use anesthesia. I'm debating whether putting my baby under is worth the removal. He said it was low risk procedure. Have any of you ever done this before? Why and why not? How was your child through the process and recovery? What have you been told about the risks of removing it versus the risks of not? Thanks for sharing your experiences.

My Daughter Has a Wart :(

My 7yo daughter has had a bump on the underside of her wrist for a while now. At her well visit I asked the doctor about it and he said that it is a wart. He said we could leave it alone, try an over the counter remedy or have it frozen off in the dr's office (but that would be a bit painful). It doesn't seem to bother her and she doesn't know the stigma behind warts but I would like it gone. Occasionally she'll pick at it until it bleeds a little. I definitely don't want to put her thru anything painful. I also don't want to make a big...
