My 16 month old has a really bad rash on her chin from dribbling a lot (because of teething). Any suggesting on soothing or preventing it? So far we've just been trying to keep it dry & put pawpaw ointment on but it's not really making a difference.

Thanks!

Hi Haylie



With my 2 kids i used bibs and regularly change them. If it gets too bad go to the chemist and pick up an anti-fungal cream to help treat the rash. If the area is getting really red and pimply then the anti-fungal cream should help treat it and prevent more. With my 2nd child i had to get a prescription for Bactroban to help treat the rash under his neck. Hope that helps :)
