We have started using lanolin on our dry skin or eczema patches. Last night DS had majorly chapped cheeks from washing him after eating. Sleeping with lanolin on last night cleared it up completely.

Re: Guess this rash

Definitely excema, all 3 of my kids have it and so do I! CJ's works great, or any kind of "greasy" looking cream like Aquaphor. It's really itchy and irritating so that's probably why he was fussing with it!

Thanks! I got some coconut oil and after doing an oatmeal soak in the tub slathered him down with the oil. I find a couple small patches on his arms too.

Do you recommend twice a day for the moisturizing? At least until it clears up?

Re: Guess this rash

What do you wash him with and how often? People with eczema cannot really wash as often as other people. We(after many years) have discovered that California Baby Sensitive works the best for us. I love CJ's when it is really bad like that but for daily use I like California Calendula Cream in a jar. That is miserable to have, it just itches and burns so bad. Water even hurts. IME things like Aquafor can work but they are petroleum based(yuck) and keep your skin from breathing. Our DS got a bad skin infection from the aquafor clogging his pores all up.
