What can I use. Aquaphor does not work, I have tried a ton of expensive lotions. Can I use hydrocortisone cream? Any advise would help it looks awful and I feel terrible.

i would switch from aquaphor to vaseline (they are the same) but if you read up on hydrocortisone cream, it actually can damage the skin.... just make sure that DAILY you put vaseline on his cheeks, and keep his face clean, but everytime you wash his face reapply the vaseline.... if you MUST use hydrocortisone, mix it with the vaseline.

do you have any lanolin left from breastfeeding? I use that on everything! Works like a charm, and you only need a tiny bit.
