Q.

Chin rash

Hi dr
My 6 month old daughter has a really bad red chin rash. She is drooling excessively (possibly starting to teeth). I change her bib regularly and have also tried Repair SBR cream and Dilucort. Nothing works. It briefly went away recently when she was on antibiotics, but it has returned again.
What can I do to help her?
Thank you!

This rash is caused by your baby's own saliva due to her drooling. Her drooling is due to her teething. Apply a little Bepanthen Cream to this rash twice daily.
