Quick q before I go into town: what to put on LO's face, looks chapped?

My DD is 16mo, she is teething heavily (a couple of molars by the feel of it) had a cold, and just prone to getting a bit mucky. As a result of some or any of these things, or the weather her face is looking a bit chapped, red and rashy. It looks quite sore, I'm just wondering what to put on it as a barrier or to heal it.

Any advice?

wash it with warm water and cotton wool, pat dry until THOROUGHLY dry, then apply vaseline generously.

calendula cream is good

Brill, no need to buy anything special. I'll try the vaseline, though calendula cream sounds nice so I might have a look for that too.

I find Magic cream by Avent works - sorry too late for your trip to town.
