Can anyone suggest a non-irritating dummy for 6m eczema suffering ds please?

I never really wanted to use dummies but ds sucked his thumb and would get really distressed when I would cover his hands to stop him from scratching. I give him a dummy for sleeping/napping only and he is really content with it.
I've tried a few different types but they all seem to rub on his gorgeous fat cheeks so now he has really red sore patches.
Ideally, I need one with no side bits or sides that turn slightly out instead of in.

Does anyone know what I mean and can help me?

Could you put vaseline on his face first? hmm

Tommee Tippee. the smooth plastic one with the little duck or monkey workes for dd. I bought the TT coloured ones recently but they have a rough rubber surround the made the surrounding skin flare up. Dont know if this advice is too late as you posted in May.

It depends on how bad the eczema is, in DS case there was no option, the dummy was a liability causing recurrent infections so it had to go.

Put some lasinoh nipple cream on after wash and dry - it's amazing and works well!
