Baby Your Toddler’s Skin
“Our daughter continued to have very dry skin and some patches of eczema during her toddler years,” says Melody Derrick, MD, a mom of a two-year-old daughter who’s expecting another baby and a family physician in private practice with Cadence Physician Group, in Winfield, IL. “We used Eucerin with alpha-hydroxy. This helped with the dry skin and eczema.
“As an added bonus, Eucerin also helped my daughter with keratosis pilaris,” Dr. Derrick notes. “This is a common, benign condition characterized by bumps on the backs of the arms.
“I had to convince my husband that I was using the lotion to help with the health of our daughter’s skin. He thought that I was just putting lotion on her to make her smell good or give her soft, pretty skin!”
Eucerin offers a variety of skin products, including an Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment. This product helps soothe and protect skin that’s irritated because of eczema, diaper rash, drooling, minor burns, or abrasions, and it’s safe to use anywhere on baby’s skin.
A three-ounce tube of Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment costs $14.99 and can be found at supermarkets and drugstores.
