What are the best creams or pills to get a fair skin? Can I use lavender johnson and johnsons baby oil?

Creams and water: Pills are not the answer for improving your skin. Hydration and lubrication is. You need to read your labels and change how you bath and care for your skin. Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily. Limit bathing to 2 times a week if possible. Moisturize your skin at least once a day, twice if you can - it doesn't matter what moisturizer, as long as you do it consistently. Use sun screen on exposed skin! ...Read more

Am I wasting my money buying natural baby skin care products? Do regular creams work just as well?

Yes.: This is one of my major pet peeves. Please don't be seduced by the "natural" label. Cyanide is natural. So is arsenic. It's one of those words, like "organic" and "herbal", that manufacturers put on products for the sole purpose of charging you more for them. Yes, regular creams work just as well - and in many cases, better. ...Read more

What can cause a 1 year old child to develop alergies and rashes on its skin from mosquito bites? Does any skin cream help?

What can cause a 1 year old child to develop alergies and rashes on its skin from mosquito bites? Does any skin cream help?

Mosquito bites: That's what mosquito's do - cause those huge local reactions, and in a rare person, even more widespread reactions. If I get a mosquito bite on my leg, it will often swell to the size of a small cup saucer. It's due to histamine release locally. Sometimes cool compresses to the area are helpful, but for such a large reaction, topical anti-itch meds probably won't do much. Could try oral benadryl, (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

Try...: Using a soap with moisturizer built in and shower in lukewarm water. Try this for a few weeks, if nothing has changed then use a Hydrocortisone cream.

My 1 month old baby's skin is really dry on the face and neck. He has some little red bump too. What is the best brand of lotion or cream for him?

My 1 month old baby's skin is really dry on the face and neck. He has some little red bump too. What is the best brand of lotion or cream for him?

Patience: The baby acne is a common event that reflects hormones transferred during the pregnancy. While the baby is floating in moisture, the skin is will not respond, but within weeks of birth they break out for many weeks before the hormone levels begin to drop & the acne disappears. Keeping the skin clean & avoiding irritating soaps helps. Occasional use of a 1/2% hc once daily can calm some lesions. ...Read more

My 7wk baby has infected eczema where her skin in d affected areas is weeping & looks very sore been there for 3wks now. Is steroid cream safe option?

Yes.: Lots of babies get eczema - and steroid creams are 100% safe if used appropriately. First, be sure that you use lots of moisturizer on these areas twice per day - this alone can sometimes fix the problem. If not, mix the moisturizer 50/50 with 1% hydrocortisone, or if you have a prescription cream, use that, and apply. Use the creams generously and consistently - should improve in 10 days. ...Read more

Baby facial skin is lightened due to use of Fucidin 2% cream & Hydrocortisone Acet 1% for one week use. Will her tan skin colour come back?

Unlikely due to med: Those meds should not be causing any fading. Would wonder if condition for which child is being treated may be the cause. If so, in MOST cases, skin color comes back to normal, but may take weeks/months to do so. Best to talk to your doctor about your concerns. Hope this was helpful.

My 3+ weeks Baby had boils on inner thighs near genital area and also on scrotum. Siloderm Cream cleared boils leaving broken skin. Was it safe?

No harm: I don't think you did any harm but it sounds like your baby had/has a staph infection. There are no antibiotics in siloderm. I think if you are seeing open lesions, he should be checked and receive antibiotics. All the best. ...Read more
