Cold wind burn/rash

My son is 16 months, and we live in north Texas. We don't get a whole lot of cold weather, but the last couple of weeks, it's been in the 20s and windy, and he's developed a sort of wind burn on his face. It's red and looks like it's chapped. I think what's also adding to it is that he's teething, so he's drooling like crazy, and that has caused some irritation as well. Has it ever happened to you, and what helps it go away? I've used the Burt's Bees All Better Balm, and it helps, as long as his face stays dry, but with all the drooling, it's impossible to keep dry! A "southern" momma needs help from all you northerners! :)

My daughter is 18 months and we live in NY. The winters can be brutal here. California Baby makes a great product called Calendula cream. I have used this for everything from diaper rash(Sam is lactose intolerant), cradle cap, under her nose while teething & my own terribly dry hands after spilling bleach. It absorbs very quickly, very light yet pleasant sent & best of all it works and it last. A little goes a long way. It is hypoallergenic, no mineral oil to clog or irritate skin & natural ingredients. You can also try Emu oil or Jojoba oil(amazon or Vitamin drug store or vitamin store sells Jojoba. Inexpensive absorbs fast, Little goes along way. Also good for mom's hair (little on scalp helps nourish hair & help it grow & skin becomes nice & silky. Look them up & get info on them. You'll be happy you did. Good luck
