Post subject: Help / advise (red dry cracking skin round mouth of baby)
Wondering if amyone here has experienced their child getting red patchy skin round the mouth and under the chin, the skin is starting to look leathery and is cracking in places. My daughter is 7 months old, she has started on mashed up foods a month or so ago and was wondering if this could cause the sores or if its just becasue of teething and the constant dribbling making her skin around the mouth wet.
Its got that bad that we are heading to the doctor on monday to have it looked at but was wondering if anyone here has experienced tha same and what they did to help reduce this,.

Thanks for the Quick reply, the weather and the coat thing might be what it is, we have been ouside in the cold recently and her coat is done right up and here face rubs on it.
Whenever i see some mark on her i always think OMG whats that Human nature i suppose. I will refrain from doing the coat right upand protect her face with a crem barrier before we venture out again, see if it helps.

Post subject: SORE MOUTH FROM WEANING
Hi wondering if anyone can help, I have started to wean my son (we are about 3 weeks in) and he has now got sore skin all around his mouth. I have tried putting vaseline around his mouth to form a barrier in case it is acid from the fruit which i am pureeing myself, but this doesn't seem to be working. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks
