Tips from Mustela


Your baby’s skin has a wealth of unique cell potential, but it is also delicate and undeveloped: it doesn’t yet function as a complete protective barrier, and so it can easily become irritated. Red, dry, and/or chapped areas can appear around the mouth (especially if your baby uses a pacifier), in skin folds (neck, armpits, groin, etc.), on the thumb if your baby sucks his thumb, behind the ears, or even on the hands, especially when it’s cold outside. If your baby has these symptoms, it’s important to get on top of them in order to preserve that fund of cells, soothe discomfort and remove possible infection points.
