My baby has a rash on his face. I think it might be eczema because his face is dry. Can i put vaseline on his face?

My baby has a rash on his face. I think it might be eczema because his face is dry. Can i put vaseline on his face?

Go to a doctor: Baby's skin is very delicate and it is not good to treat it with things that are fine for older children and adults. A facial rash may not be serious, but it may be part of an allergic reaction or something else requiring a prescription. Make an appointment or visit an urgent care clinic to avoid problems. Vaseline does not sound good, but ask a druggist for a baby product that won't hurt. ...Read more

Does baby soap produce blackheads on my face?

Does baby soap produce blackheads on my face?

Shouldnt: Probably has no effect. The best treatment for blackheads is long term use of prescription tretinoin or adapalene. If you can only use over the counter products and cannot go see a doctor, you will benefit from over the counter products with salicylic acid. A procedure called dermasweep has given my patients good results, too. ...Read more

Would biting your nails cause pimples on your face. My grandaughter bites her nails and breaking out now with pimples on her face.

Would biting your nails cause pimples on your face. My grandaughter bites her nails and breaking out now with pimples on her face.

What you can do: From my reading and conversations, nail-biting is primarily genetic; some humans and animals prefer the nails short, and your granddaughter will do well to trim them short each morning, rather than being shamed or told to exercise "will power" or "control anxiety." acne needs to managed as a medical problem, benzoyl peroxide and a prescription rx if this fails. Use this to help your granddaughter. ...Read more
