almost looks chapped, could be wind burn.... DS has got it too though, but his is responding to vaseline and aveeno, so think his is more down to dribbling constantly.

any tips too get the redness down?? I am wonderinhg whether i should keep her off nursery thins afternoon so i can keep her creamed constantly....

Either Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream or Lanisoh regularly applied should do it. You could try popping into a pharmacy and ask for advice too.

Or good old sudocrem?

shes never had this EVER before (she does have a dummy) but has never had a sore chin like this

see if you can get something called-

Adcortyl in Orabase.

DS1 has the same problem. This cream seems to do the trick.

Dont know if you can only get it on precription though.

Yep nipple cream Lanisoh. I've been known to put it on my really manky eczema patches and it works wonders

I'd say sudocream too. DD1 dribbles when sucking her thumb and quite frequently gets a rash.

TBH (and I have been guilty of doing this in the past)I would be careful about trying too many cures in an attempt to speed up healing as her skin might get further irritated by yet more ingredients being put on IYKWIM

If all else fails a dab of coverstick before the photos or photoshop the actual photos

(hey if Maddonna can do it!)

I'm sure she'll look so pretty no one will notice anyway!
