Baby skin matters

Hello mummies, I need help! My baby is 32 days old. I used cetaphil for the past 1-2 wk after birth for bathing her. Then the skin got red. I thought baby Acne was normal. But it got worst. Baby has drooling patches in the mouth area/cheek/below lips and upper lips. I used mustela dry cream today and testing it. . How about the body? Can anyone advise.

I’m no doctor so I can’t tell you what exactly but based on the photo, my son had something similar to this. We switched to Aveeno baby Dermexa wash, it seemed to have calmed his redness down but we were obviously still concerned as it is still significantly bumpy. Brought him to the PD and he diagnosed him with eczema. Prescribed a mild 0.5% steroid cream along with Physiogel AI Lipid Balm (this version is only available at the doctors. Closest version to find in Pharmacy is the cream version). After a few days of treatment, it cleared up completely.

Hi my son has the same condition! Went to the PD and found out he has eczema. I had to stop using cetaphil as it does not contain ceramide. As prescribed by my Pd, now I’m using ceradan body wash and the advanced moisturiser for my baby and when it’s quite bad I will use the steroid cream (but very thin layer).

idk what is this. but better bring baby to PD asap. also observe what u use to wash baby's clothing, what u feed, what soap u use to bath baby etc. this information will always help u in this situation cos u never know if baby might be allergic to any of these.

Oh my. This looks serious. Better to check with PD immediately. My girl has eczema but it is localised on the face and sometimes on the back for which I just apply Cetaphil AD Derma every shower. Works well with my girl.

I used cicastela from mustela for the rashes so far now all gone, the body not sure maybe u try other bathing brand or better go see pedia vThey can give u advice

It looks like heatrash but i would suggest to bring him to pedia as it looks a lot.
