Dermadew Lotions For Baby
Yes, moisturize: Babies do need more moisturizing. Their skin does not produce as much natural oil as adults and it is more sensitive. Extra moisturizing is needed because we use all sorts of soaps and cleansers on our babies to keep them clean. All soaps, even gentle baby soaps will remove natural oils and dry out the skin. This is why you should add moisture back to your baby's skin after bathing. ...Read more
Derm: Yes especially if u love in a dry environment. Many products available for babies. Stay away from scented products. Just plan old baby lotion is okay. ...Read more

Used lotion on hands. I have 6 month old daughter. She just licked my hands. I then saw the lotion contains honey. Is she at risk for infant botulism?
Other than infant sunscreen & lotion, shade hats, & cool clothing, what can I bring to protect from sun burn?
Baby lotion: As long as it is a first degree burn, not blistering, baby oil or aloe vera should be fine to sooth the burn. I prefer aloe vera. If there are blisters, it is a second degree burn, and you should see a physician. ...Read more

Sure, but...: ...It's not going to do much of anything. Soak some washcloths or small towels in cool water and apply them to the burned skin. Hydrocortisone cream will help decrease the inflammation as well. And learn the lesson that mr. Sun is trying to teach you: he is our friend, but we must respect his power; apply a good broad-spectrum sunscreen when you go out. ...Read more

Eczema: Lotions are not the preferred initial treatment for eczema unless for mild or minimal cases. Emollients or heavy creams are preferred especiallywhen applied after a bath when the skin is still moist. They trap water the best. ...Read more

Be understanding: Give the child (depending on age and maturity) the information he or she needs to understand why the lotion is important, what may happen if it is not applied and ask questions. Let the child know that he/she may be very uncomfortable and give them ownership of the problem. Should this progress to a situation of significant risk, you will have to step up, bea parent and do the necessary thing. ...Read more
Yes-see below: The U.S. Centers for disease control states repellents made with deet or picardin offer the most protection against mosquitoes and ticks. Both are recommended for adults and kids 2 months of age & older. Picaridin is a chemical that's similar in effectiveness to deet, but it's odorless, lighter, and less irritating. Citronella-natural repellant needs frequent applications, and is not as effective. ...Read more
Yes But.......: Lotion is okay sparingly and only very mild lotions. I often recommend cetaphil or aquafor some creams and lotions can create rashes. Most rashes on the face are caused by their own slobber and contact with linens, blankets and clothing. The rashes wax and wane. Wipe the face often with a wash cloth and this will help too. ...Read more
Rewards work: The preteen/teen years are the two's recycled. If you want to avoid win/lose confrontations don't set yourself up for them. Make allowance contingent on you seeing him/her apply the lotion, or figure out another reward. If you want the behavior you must understand the kid's developmental stage and work around it. ...Read more
Stretch marks are very thin scars that develop when the skin is stretched for a long time.
Treatments that promise to remove stretch marks are laser resurfacing therapy & dermabrasion. I am skeptical about these. No creams or lotions work. All are pretty expensive. Nothing over-the-counter works. Check with a dermatologist to see what he/she might recommend. But I wouldn't be hopeful. ...Read more
Yes: This is a great choice to hydrate your skin. ...Read more
Lots of choices.: Your local drugstore will have a shelves full of dry skin lotions. My favorites are eucerin, aveeno, (oatmeal) cetaphil, keri, lubriderm, and cerave, but there are lots of others. Whatever you choose, apply it right after bathing, while the baby's skin is still moist, to "lock in" the moisture - because the real cure for dry skin is water, not lotion. ...Read more
