Q.

Tea Tree Oil Products

Good afternoon,

I would like to know if it is safe to use products with tea tree oil on a five month old baby in an attempt to address dermatitis.

Kind regards,

I cannot find a clear answer about the use of tree oil in young babies, but would not be in favour of using it.
