Q.

Rash under chin and on jaw line

Hi,

My little one has developed a rash around her chin and on her jawline. I think she' s teething as everything goes she gets her hands on go straight to her mouth and she drools a lot. Is there anything I can use on it or will it clear on it' s own.

Any comments/suggestions are appreciated.

This rash is caused by your baby's dribbling and it is her own saliva that is irritating her skin. Try a little Zinc cream on the rash. Apply this at least twice a day until it clears.
