Q.

Dry red cheeks

Good Day Doc,

My baby' s cheeks are very dry and red, even though I put baby lotion everyday. What can use on his face? I noticed the dry, red cheeks just this week so I think it is related to the weather. Please advise.

This may be an early sign of eczema. Try using a moisturiser such as Physiogel and see if this helps your baby's dry rash on his cheeks. The Physiogel is rather expensive but is an excellent moisturiser.
