Q.

Rash around mouth

Hi there,

My lo has had this rash around her mouth for 1 week already. Her lips are also very dry.

I have also noticed that all 4 canine teeth are pushing through gums.

I use vaseline to rub on the areas and the chin area doesn' t seem that bad anymore as I try to keep it clean and dry. She moans a bit when I put on her top lip.

She also has very dry lips. What can I use or this?
Is this a drooling rash caused by teething?
And what can I use to fascilitate the healing process?

This seems to be a dribbling rash associated with teething.Try a little zinc cream on the rash and see if this heals it up.
