Frequent Vaseline: Eczema on the body and face is in most cases transient and doesn't leave life long scars in most babies. Eczema occurs due to the skin becoming dry. Some important things to do: 1. Apply vaseline/eczema ointments 4-6 times per day 2. Use luke warm water for baths 3. Don't put soaps in the water for bathing as it leaches fat from the skin. 4. Use small amounts of aveno baby wash/dove soap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Overuse of...: ...Cortisone creams can cause thinning of the skin, which sometimes results in permanent stretch marks. Fine blood vessels may swell and become prominent under the skin surface. In rare cases enough cortisone might be absorbed internally to cause growth suppression or adrenal gland suppression.

Chronic: Eczema is chronic and will recur. I recommend avoiding harsh soaps which will dry the skin, use aquaphor or vanicream to protect your baby's skin throughout the day and desonide to keep it controlled, preferably no more than 3 times a week. It gets better over time! also, eczema makes skin more susceptible to infections so if it persists, see your dr. ...Read more

Also, ointments are preferable to lotions if dryness is severe. Also should be using a moisturizing face wash. Most baby soaps are not moisturizing. Soaps like dove, caress, tone or aquaphor body wash are good choices. ...Read more

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
