My daughter has eczema, what are good soaps/shampoos to use? She's 4 yrs old. Is aveeno (oatmeal) great?
Suggested products: I like cetaphil cleanser for eczema - it is a non-soap cleanser and does not strip away the moisture the skin needs yet still cleans. Shampoos?

How dangerous is for an adult to drink baby oil? Is baby oil the same as mineral oil for constipation?
Don't do it!: Uncertain--i can find no exact references in pubmed re: ingestion of baby oil. Nevertheless, there are well characterized syndromes associated with aspiration of toxic oils with resulting pneumonitis, as well as in the 1990's an eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome associated with toxic-oil intake, diffuse fasciitis, & eosinophilia. Don't take a chance! still in doubt, call the poison control center. ...Read more
No: By mineral oil for baby cares, I am assuming you are referring to constipation. The latter is common in both breastfed and formula fed babies. Usually we recommend prune juice in young infants and increased fiber in diet in older ones. Hydration is very important. If these methods do not work, a glycerin suppository can be used in younger kids; you should seek out your dr if constipation is common. ...Read more

You can also keep your baby covered with spf protected clothing and hats. Always remember to not expose your baby to direct sunlight and keep in the shade. ...Read more
