Your Questions About Eczema

David asks…

My 5 month baby is having rashes on her face because of summer, what should I do?

From birth her skin doesn’ t accept any oil or johnson’s products.I want her colour increase. Pls help me? I can’t even apply olive oil also?

admin answers:

Are you sure its heat bumps? It might be milk bumps instead. My son has the same thing, looks like baby acne and i apply vaseline daily to his cheeks(just once a day) its taking a while but its slowly clearing up . Good luck.

Helen asks…

Do you use sunscreen on a baby?

My daughter is currently 4 months. My husband and I were looking at swimsuits for her this summer, when an employee of the store asked if we needed assistance. We talked for a bit and she mentioned her daughter’s pediatrician told her not to use sunscreen on a baby that young. I had never heard this before — have you?

I definitely plan to mention this to my doctor as my curiosity is getting the best of me. I always thought sunscreen was good everyone, especially with a baby‘s sensitive skin.

admin answers:

Our pediatrician recommended we used sunscreen and put on a hat. I’m not sure why you wouldn’t let me google it.
ETA: I see our baby is 12 months

Until recently the American Academy of Pediatrics advised against the use of sunblock in babies under six months of age. Now they recommend:

“For babies under six months of age, sunscreen may be used on small areas of the body such as the face and the back of the hands if adequate clothing and shade are not available. For older children, test the sunscreen on the baby’s back for a reaction before applying it all over. Apply carefully around the eyes, avoiding the eyelids. If your baby rubs sunscreen into her eyes, wipe the eyes and hands clean with a damp cloth. If the sunscreen burns her eyes, try a different brand or try a sunscreen stick or sunblock with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. If a rash develops, talk to your pediatrician.”

There are two very important reasons for not overusing sunscreen in young babies:

1. Infants and children have what is called a high body surface to volume ratio. What this means is that proportionately babies have more skin for the size body as compared to an adult. Sunscreens are made of chemicals. On the older child and adult, the chemical exposure is relatively minimal because the body surface ratio is smaller than a baby. Therefore, babies get a higher “dose” of sunscreen than do those older. While this exposure would most likely not cause any problems, the likelihood of an adverse reaction is greater.

2. Babies have a mildly impaired mechanism to keep cool by sweating. In addition, they have a greater risk of becoming dehydrated due to heat. Sunscreen can somewhat impair effective cooling by perspiration, so placing it on an infant could be detrimental.

Donna asks…

Is there such a thing as doggy diapers without the tail hole? ?

I have a boston terrier who doesn’t have much of tail. She is in heat and I have a washable diaper but it has a hole. We use maxi pads but it just makes the diaper tighter and puts rub rashes on her legs 🙁

Is there such a thing as a doggy diaper without a hole? Or a harness with pads included? Sometimes it slips off when she is running.

Thank you for your help!

Go buy a pack of baby diapers. Not kidding I use them on my dogs.

Edited to say muchas pooches rescue when my females go outside to potty the diaper comes off. The hole is big enough for the tail not big enough for a BM.
