Re: Infant Eczema?

I bought some cetaphil barrier cream this morning and its been working great. However, upon further investigation (DH mentioned DS was swollen) it looks like he had a reaction to the baby oil!

I found this LINK. Long story short... mineral oil can ask like a plastic coating on the skin which can cause severe allergic reactions. I will be reading ingredients alot more closely now. I bought some eurcerin too and one of its ingredients is mineral oil... too bad DD chewed on the bottle or I could have returned it... into the trash it goes!

I'm still going to take him in and have the Dr take a look.

Thanks for all the advice ladies! I can always count on the diaperswappers mamas!
