Q.

Bepanthen

My clinic recommends that I try using Bepanthen on my baby' s face. Baby is 8 months and has eczema on face. I have tried using numerous creams without much help. Is Bepanthen safe to use on the face?

Bepanthen is safe to use but is unlikely to help for eczema. Rather just use a mild moisturising cream such as Epimax.
