My baby's eyes get pink. My mom asked me to drop mother milk on them? Is it safe? Is it used for ear pain, heat rash...?

My baby's eyes get pink. My mom asked me to drop mother milk on them? Is it safe? Is it used for ear pain, heat rash...?

I wouldn't: There are a number of parenting practices passed down through generations that have no value, including this one. Breast milk is a good feed, that's it. It is amazing that so many of us survived these interesting practices.

Hi my 2 year old daughter got red rash under eye, on cheeks. Seems like heat rash. What to apply on it?

Nothing: The skin in that area is very sensitive. Without having a chance to examine the "rash" I would encourage you to leave it alone. Just keep the area clean and the body will figure it out. If it spreads have someone look at it.

Recurring heat rash in cold weather. Causes?

Recurring heat rash in cold weather. Causes?

Not likely heat rash: If your rash is occurring in cold weather, that is not likely heat rash. The term heat-rash refers to a rash occurring due to excessive heat. Eczema is often worse in cold and dry weather and so you may want to have it checked out. Without knowing what the rash looks like and its distribution on the body, it is difficult to make a diagnosis. So, consult doc. Good luck.
