Q.

Chapped skin

My baby is 14 months old and I have noticed that in winter since this is her second winter on earth her face gets chapped and it will have dark marks of dryness. I have tried Epimax but it does not seem to help for long it provides temporary relief. What else can I use to soothe her skin and get rid of those dark marks of dryness?

Your baby appears to have very dry skin indeed. She may have a type of eczema. Epimax should help. First bath her using Epizone E instead of using soap and then afterwards apply the Epimax to her face.
