One more question

I''m sorry I''m asking so many questions. We live in a very small town and our nearest hospital / paeditrician is 2 hours drive away.

My baby still has some red spots on her face. These seem to go away in the day and reappear at night. I thought it was a reaction to the NAN but it hasn''t cleared up since on Isomil. I''m only cleaning her face with a clean wet cloth and I''m not using any kinds of creams or oils on her face. Will this go away on its own, or is there something else I can do?

Thank you

If your baby's rash disappears and then reappears it is unlikely to be eczema. The most likely cause is a temporary skin condition seen in babies of this age known as milia. You just need to use a damp cloth to gently wipe her face and you are treating her correctly.
