I know someone whose son was drooling a lot and we thought he was teething, and it turned out to be a sinus infection... just something to consider, just in case.

Definitely don't use anything with any kind of perfumes in it. A damp cloth would be best to do the clean up, and a all natural moisturizer will help with keeping him from getting chapped skin.

i read that a damp flannel give the little one something soft to chew on and it relieves pain... my baby strated teething when she was 6 weeks old the other thing that helps her as she rejects dummys is calpol...

Probably teething, and the rash is from all the drool more than likely. My little girl got the same. And only four teeth to show for it!

Teething makes them drool pretty bad. Is the rash on his face from the moisture from the drool? If so, it helps to gently wipe it with a damp cloth, pat dry and then apply a gentle barrier cream like bepanthen which is made of almond oil and vitamin B5 to help healing. Some medications also cause drooling - is he on anything?
