My 16wks old son has chubby cheeks and in the night he manages to rub them raw on his nigh clothes, any suggestions to overcome the sores which happen nearly every day. I've moisturised him, I've put barrier creams such as sudocream, but seems to rub off, dry onto his clothes and makes the clothes dry and tough for his skin to be rubbed a vicious circle! Any help would be appreciated.

Change your laundry detergent and conditioner. Sounds like contact dermatitis. Make sure he is sleeping on pure cotton.
