Hi, my son has it on his on his forehead aswell and it's also on the top of his chest and back. I took him to the dr who said it was just an infant rash, his was a type of baby acne. He told me to put e45 cream on it and it's been working wonders. It's safe to use but take her to the dr aswell as it could be eczma. Hope that's helped.

when my daughter gets chapped i use lashinoh (lanolin cream for nusing mothers) it works great on my dd and usually after i put it on she keeps her toung in her mouth for a while (she sticks it out and lics her lips all the time) a little but of that cream goes a long way so you dont need a whole lot

My son had this and the nurse said to use hydrocortisone cream and eucerin to seal it in. It cleared up in a day or two.

I have something called a moisturising stick.. It's called Gerber Teeny Faces and it's fragrance free. It works really well for chapped cheeks and drool rash.

where did you find the Gerber Teeny Faces? my son has those red chapped cheeks as well.


FF - November 27

monica- actually, I don't remember where I bought the thing... but I am sure they are available in the baby care isle of any drugstore or Wal Mart if you are in the US :)

I had seen the teeny faces stuff everywhere before I had the baby, now that he is here and has chapped cheeks it is nowhere to be found Argh!

My son has that on his forehead as well. I use Aquaphor but that stuff is really expensive. I am going to look for the Gerber Teeny Faces. Monica, try looking online at the Gerber website. That is what I am going to do.

The teeny faces does work great- and it's in a stick that you can use on your face and lips as well, so it does double duty :) Hope you find it!
