My doctor recommended hydracortisone cream which was great initially when the rash on my daughters face was raw and Cetaphil for everyday use which worked ok. I prefer all natural so I did a little research and tried Weleda Calendula Oil and then Burts Bees moisturizers. Eventually the whole family switched to Burts Bees shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer. The baby bee milk and honey works well and smells great! Tip: apply moisturizer right after bathing to seal in moisture.

My daughter has a rash during the winter months as well, and the ONLY thing that works for her is the eucerin sensitive cream. It doesn't have any oil or fragrances in it. It is a little pricey but totally worth it. :)

I would also try vaseline at night and in the morning just before heading out for the day. I use it in extreme weather to protect the kids faces.

Try just a dab of petroleum jelly..he may not dribble but he may lick his mouth around his libs and not be aware of it. It could just be from the cold and wind. My little granddaughter has that same thing. My daughter bought the creams and they didn't do any good. But the petroleum jelly kept the dampness from her skin and it would clear right up.

Ask your doctor if the cream Mimyx will help. We used it for my son's eczema and it worked in a week. It's a dermological cream, so it probably can be used for all sorts of skin rashes. Good luck to you.
