chubby neck on baby.

Ya I was and dry my daughters neck and then pit a layer of 'Penatin' (bum cream) under her neck. This helps keep the drool and puke from getting to her skin,. but it is very important that the skin is dry before putting the cream on, or it will just seal the moisture to the skin instead. I have a hard time getting under her chin(s) when I wash her, she usually keeps it very tight :)

Yes, my daughter has the same thing. Your best bet is Desitin (or other diaper cream will probably work too). We started using it and her neck cleared up quickly. Our pediatrician also concurred with this method. It will block out the moisture and protect her skin from developing sores (that could lead to a fungal infection - my niece got that bad once). I hope that helps! - Danielle

my sons was really bad and I would not go as far as medicating personally, So what I did for my son was bathed him everyday then laid him on my lays with his head crinked bath exposing his neck,,. gave it a gental wipe with the towel let is air dry then put cornstarch on it. In the matter of a day you could see a defference and his was to the point of bleeding and stinking,... and after less than a week his neck was normal

my daughter gets this all the time. what i find clears it right up is to clean it real good and then put some diaper rash cream on it. I always use "Butt Paste" which is, I think, the best diaper rash cream in the world. I tried the baby powder or corn starch thing and it ended up making it look like cottage cheese, which I personally found even more gross then the neck goober...

Yeah..i have a two month old and he has some neck rolls..i have to make sure I wash really good in between them and dry it GOOD. If not his skin will like peel off and start to smell kinda like milk from little bits of slobber or whatever getting down in there..just make sure to keep it clean and dry and you should have no problems :)

yes! my lil girl has the same thing and once in awhile ends up with a rash - what seems like a heat rash..it goes away after a few days and will pop back up. the best thing to do is keep her as dry as you can, wipe her neck with a damp cloth during the day and if she's formula fed, after feeds as well. that seems to help my girl. good luck!
