My 13 month old has very dry red flaky skin around his mouth and nose. I have tried baby oil baby lotion. But nothing helps. What do I do?

Lotions and meds: Try aquaphor lotion. There are many other lotions over the counter that can help like johnson's creamy baby oil, cetaphil, arbonne's abc lotion, etc. Your baby may have eczema. See your primary care doc if it doesn't go away. There are some prescriptions as well. Good luck.

Seborrhea: Seborrheic dermatitis is an inflammatory rash along the scalp, secondary to a yeast. The rash can have a spectrum from mild dandruff, to severe red itchy plaques. Treatments can consist of over the counter shampoos that contain zinc pyrithione or selenium sulfide. There are prescription shampoos that can treat the yeast or the inflammation.

Exam needed.: HSV is unlikely. The redness/itching/flaking is most consistent with seborrheic dermatitis (especially if scalp is also flaky), but that doesn't explain the chronic sore throat. Let your doctor examine you, and perhaps do a throat culture.

Yeast and drool: This is a common problem. It is referred to as perleche. Try brushing the top of your tongue when you brush your teeth. Also wash out any saliva that accumulates over night first thing in the morning. Go to the pharmacy and buy lotrimin (clotrimazole) and Hydrocortisone 1 percent ointment and apply one right on top of the other twice daily for 2 weeks.

Depends...: It all depends on what is causing it. It might be related to dry skin or dermatitis so I would recommend to try a chap stick which you can get over the counter in many pharmacies. If not better with that it might be related to a skin condition that may require other type of treatment so you would need to see your provider in order to have something prescribed.
