How effective is candibec to skin rash in infants?My babys pedia recomend it,

In other words, need to know cause of skin rash. Get 2nd opinion if you don't trust doc. ...Read more

While that may mean somebody will have to follow the baby around with a pooper scooper, the rash will clear very quickly. ...Read more
