My Son is 6 months and is teething so he drools like crazy. I already go through about 10 bibs a day, but the dribble rash is getting worse. Are there any creams or good tips you can advise me to help the poor guys irritated skin? I have tried Aveeno eczema cream and Galaxal base, but it's not doing much.

You might want to consider getting a Hazelwood teething necklace for your son. It has been renowned for helping with teething issues, skin issues and various other symptoms. I would'nt have believed it if I didn't see them working on countless babies, children and adults myself.

Vasoline is great for sealing the red area and keeping it drier. Will make him look all shiny, but seals and protects and does not sting. My friend's baby often got this type of rash and it was the only thing that gave him relief - most other creams absorb in so don't leave a protective layer. She used them after a bath before bed, and the vasoline during the day when he was up and so dribbling more.

Good luck!

Zinc and castor oil ointment is great, its like a water proof barrier for the drool.

wipe off all of the drool so that his chin is completely dry, then put a very thin layer of Vaseline on his chin. it will keep the moisture off and help his chin heal.

We used Destin and or a little vasoline to help wick away the drool. You can also try Aquaphor it helped with one of my girlfriends little ones.

thanks moms, i'v been putting vasoline on him day and night (since I have it already) and try to clean his skin whenever there is drool since his saliva has digestive enzymes that creates the irritation. Another reason for his major irritation is he has gas reflux meaning he spits up a lot which makes it even worse. I caught him scratching his neck last night! Can't keep my eyes off him...

I would say vaseline. Think about it...oil/grease resists water... however, I would ask your doctor before doing so.

my daughter went through the same thing. I found the Gaia skin soothing lotion to be the best, cleared it up within days. She is getting her next 2 teeth at the moment and i noticed the rash starting to appear again, put it on for one day and it was gone

My lil boy went thru this too.. There wasnt a huge amount I could do except to change his bib regularly and try to keep the rash clean and dry.. which it seems you are doing anyway. The other thing the dr suggested was a cortisone cream, which took the harshness outta the rash. Maybe ask your dr or health nurse? I really hope this gets better for you :) I know how rough it can be and painful for your lil guy! Good luck.
