My son has very dry patches on his cheeks, they feel rough to the touch and look crepey. I don't think it's eczema, it's not red and he isn't scratching. What can I use on it, any miracle cures?
I've been using l'occitane mum and baby cream as I happened to have some to hand but I don't think it's rich enough. I want something quite plain and non-irritating but rich. Would something like weleda skin food or Lucas pawpaw ointment be ok? Or maybe a pure Shea butter, coconut oil etc.
I know things like aqueous cream aren't recommended if it is eczema and was also just reading olive oil wasn't good.
Ds had cradle cap in his eyebrows and on to his face. I didnt now that was possible so I though it was just dry skin. Anyway the pediatrician recommended using silcocks base on it and also adding it to the bath water. It worked well. I've been using it as a hand cream ever since
