Q.

SKIN PRODUCTS FOR A 2YEAR OLD!

Afternoon

From birth my son has been using "Aqua bar & cream" products, He is allergic to other skin products. His skin is always dry and pale . Please advice I need something that canl keep his skin moist.

Another question is could a 2yrs child have a runny tummy for the whole month,? I went to two different doctors and a pharmacist.
They said its tonsils , its the season, but finally with pharmacy medication it stopped and my son is ok . Should I be worried that the tonsils will come back and runny tummy?

A good moisturiser is Epimax. Your pharmacy is sure to stock it.
Your child should not have diarrhoea for a month and this is certainly not due to tonsils.He may have developed diarrhoea after getting an antibiotic for tonsillitis. Give him a good Probiotic now such as Probiflora chewable tablets for children-give him 1 tablet a day for 10 days.
