Drooling - Spastic cerebral palsy

Good day, My 8 year old son drools a lot and at night pacifies himself my rubbing his face up against the pillow and sucking(drooling at this point). How can I minimize the drooling as he sometimes gets a rash due to this wetness on his cheeks. Please help

I suggest that you consult a neurologist, as there is medication available that can reduce spasticity and drooling. Please refer to the following link for more information: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000716.htm
