It's okay to use desonide 0.05% cream on my 6 month old baby's diaper rash right?

It's okay to use desonide 0.05% cream on my 6 month old baby's diaper rash right?

No : Steroid cream should never be used on a baby's diaper rash - or anywhere on a baby's skin without first seeing a doctor for diagnosis. Diaper rash is best treated by zinc oxide creams - put them on VERY THICK. You are not rubbing them in to treat the rash, rather, you are creating a barrier to prevent further irritation. ...Read more

Can you use vaporub on 6 month old baby ?

Can you use vaporub on 6 month old baby ?

I wouldn't: I consider this product more an airway irritant than health aid for any kid under 6 years of age. An infant has partial dependence on their nasal airway for breathing and any fragrance, pleasant or not, can plug them up. Any medicinal quality (the medicine smell) is more myth than real at any age.The indians used pine pitch to scent their sweat lodges, and this product mimics the practice. ...Read more
