(click on each link to see the FULL QUESTION \ ANSWER)

  1. I've been frantically searching for something to put on my baby's dribble rash. Her doctor said it was caused from the moisture (dribble) and rubbing on her clothes, he also said there was some thrush. He told me to get a cream called hydrozole which is an antifungal cream, its a steroid???/cortisone cream which i'm not too happy about using and not surprisingly i think it's done more damage than good. The rash is mostly under her chin spreading down onto her neck and top of her chest and sideways towards her ears and even up onto her cheeks, it's extremely dry and the skin has thickened its also very red and angry and it looks as though the top layer is splitting. It must be painful and i'll be looking forward to your answer


    Our Hypoallergenic Face and Body balm is ideal. Apply it before and after feeding (It doesn't sting , is totally non-toxic and mildly antiseptic)

    Often babies have chin skin folds that need a nice thick layer applied . Apply it often so you can see a shine of balm on the skin and extra thickly at night. It can even be used on the eyelids for eczema so you don't have to worry about her rubbing it in her eyes accidentally.

    Use it thickly and frequently, if the shine has rubbed off the skin put more on. This creates a barrier keeping moisture in the skin to allow it to heal, while keeping out irritants such as saliva which contain digestive enzymes that irritate the skin.

  2. My daughter is currently 6 weeks old. She has rashes around her chin area, cheeks and neck. The paedi diagnosed her as having eczema and prescribed the following : Desonide and Fucicort. We applied those sparingly and her eczema cleared up. However, after a day or two (once we stop applying), the eczema came back again.


    Babies saliva contains digestive enzymes that irritate the skin. Our Lavender Balm applied before and after every feed and thickly at night is a simple and safe way to protect the skin from the saliva and also from the irritated skin drying out and becoming red and rough. Frequent application is needed with enough applied to leave a shiny layer on the skin. It is somewhat greasy but this is necessary to keep irritants out and the skin's natural moisture in. ...ANSWER
  3. hi i have a 6 month old son thatt has a rash on his cheeks and forhead and they seen to be itching alot i dont know what to do i tried so many creams and it dosent seen to help i dont know why he gets does rashes on his face only what do you recomend me the hypoallergenic /or the regular lavender - whats the difference ?


    One third of babies up to children the age of 5 years will get eczema at some time. As saliva contains digestive enzymes it is often the cause of rashes on the face. The rash will often start to improve before the itching does so as the skin improves ensure you apply the balm at least 4 times a day. The lavender oil is the only difference and the hypo allergenic balm is the same product without lavender for families with a history of allergies to perfume and essential oils. If that doesn't apply then the lavender is better. ...ANSWER

QUESTION: How do I treat DRIBBLE RASH and CHIN RASH?



hi my name is [Mother] and i've been frantically searching for something to put on my baby's dribble rash. her doctor said it was caused from the moisture (dribble) and rubbing on her clothes, he also said there was some thrush. he told me to get a cream called hydrozole which is an antifungal cream, its a steroid???/cortisone cream which i'm not too happy about using and not surprisingly i think it's done more damage than good.

i've spent quite a bit of money trying different type barrier and healing creams (off the shelf) that don't work and i'm getting increasingly frustrated at having to watch her in pain and feeling helpless to fix it for her. i stumbled on your website and have read the testimonials and believe this may be the thing that will do the job and finally get her beautiful baby skin back but i wanted first to see which cream would be best before i order.

The rash is mostly under her chin spreading down onto her neck and top of her chest and sideways towards her ears and even up onto her cheeks, it's extremely dry and the skin has thickened its also very red and angry and it looks as though the top layer is splitting. it must be painful and i'll be looking forward to your answer so i can order the correct cream and get the treatment started.

yours sincerely,
sd.


ANSWERS for treating DRIBBLE RASH and CHIN RASH

Hi SD Mum,

The hypoallergenic face and body balm is ideal. Apply it before and after feeding (It doesn't sting , is totally non-toxic and mildly antiseptic)

Often babies have chin skin folds that need a nice thick layer applied . Apply it often so you can see a shine of balm on the skin and extra thickly at night. It can even be used on the eyelids for eczema so you don't have to worry about her rubbing it in her eyes accidentally.

Use it thickly and frequently, if the shine has rubbed off the skin put more on. This creates a barrier keeping moisture in the skin to allow it to heal, while keeping out irritants such as saliva which contain digestive enzymes that irritate the skin.

I haven't recommended the Lavender balm which is virtually identical because her skin sounds so irritated. The only difference is there is no lavender in the hypoallergenic balm.

I think you will be very happy with the results. It also nice to rub a little into your own hands at night to restore the softness after cleaning up after Bub all day.

Hope this Helps,
Kind Regards,

QUESTIONS about treating 6 week old Baby with DRIBBLE RASH and CHIN RASH


Dear David

My daughter is currently 6 weeks old. She has rashes around her chin area, cheeks and neck. The paedi diagnosed her as having eczema and prescribed the following : Desonide and Fucicort. We applied those sparingly and her eczema cleared up. However, after a day or two (once we stop applying), the eczema came back again.

We were not sure if it's the formula milk that she's taking. I've switched her from Isomil (soy based to) Nan HA (Hypoallergenice) formula. Nothing seems to work.

Would greatly appreciate your advice and help!

Many tks.. Singapore Mom..



ANSWERS for DRIBBLE RASH and CHIN RASH

Hi Singapore Mum,

The formula is unlikely to be the cause. The prescribed products are good at suppressing the problem but it will just come back when you stop.

Babies saliva contains digestive enzymes that irritate the skin. Our Lavender Balm applied before and after every feed and thickly at night is a simple and safe way to protect the skin from the saliva and also from the irritated skin drying out and becoming red and rough. Frequent application is needed with enough applied to leave a shiny layer on the skin. It is somewhat greasy but this is necessary to keep irritants out and the skin's natural moisture in.

I think a 100g jar would solve the problem in about 14 days. It will come back with teething and so on so use it whenever it is needed. It is totally safe and 100% guaranteed.

Hope this Helps,
Kind Regards,

QUESTIONS about treating RASH on FOREHEAD and CHEEKS of 6 month year old Baby


hi my name is [Mothers name] i have a 6 month old son thatt has a rash on his cheeks and forhead and they seen to be itching alot i dont know what to do i tried so many creams and it dosent seen to help i dont know why he gets does rashes on his face only what do you recomend me the hypoallergenic /or the regular lavender whats the difference if you could please email me


ANSWERS: How to treat RASH on FOREHEAD and CHEEKS of 6 month year old Baby

One third of babies up to children the age of 5 years will get eczema at some time. As saliva contains digestive enzymes it is often the cause of rashes on the face. I would suggest the Lavender face & body balm applied before and after a feed to protect the skin. Avoid baby wipes as they are scented and have various chemicals in them. A soft flannel or face washer moistened with water is better. The rash will often start to improve before the itching does so as the skin improves ensure you apply the balm at least 4 times a day or more but very thinly during the day. Enough to put a shine on the skin so the skin can still "breathe".

The lavender oil is the only difference and the hypo allergenic balm is the same product without lavender for families with a history of allergies to perfume and essential oils. If that doesn't apply then the lavender is better.

Lavender Balm applied before and after every feed
