My 3 year old son has a mystery lung problem for over a year now. He has chronic bronchitis and multiple hospitalizations. He waas hospitalized with107 fever andnow peeling skin on his toes and fingers. What could it be?

The fevers/skin definitely raises the possibility of kawasakis, ut the other chronic lung problems are best evaluated by your pediatrician and a pulmonologist. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I pick off my baby’s peeling skin?

Can I pick off my baby’s peeling skin?

No: Just leave it alone. It will simply fall off on it's own. If you are worried that the skin is so dry that it may be getting cracked in certain locations (wrists or ankles in particular right after birth), try applying some vasoline or aquaphor ointment. In due time, the old (dead skin) will simply fall off as you bathe your baby and the new skin underneath will be nice and soft. ...Read more

Should I moisturize my baby’s peeling skin?

Yes: If you are talking about the normal peeling of new infant skin in the first month, sure it is fine to do a moisturizer, as long as it is unscented, and preferably a creme rather than a lotion. I recommend eucerin, or even an olive oil based unscented moisturizing creme when baby gets out of the bath, if you are interested to avoid petroleum based products on baby's skin. ...Read more

Why is my skin peeling after surgery?

More Information: It depends on where you are experiencing this problem. Most times, I find my patients have peeling around the incision site where surgical glue has been applied. This is actually the glue that is peeling off, and not the skin. Other times, the skin is peeling due to a reaction to the tape. Removing the tape and keeping the area clean and dry will help.

Please see your surgeon as soon as possible. ...Read more
