    Could it be eczema?? DD had similar thing at about 8weeks and the paediatriciann said its eczema, prescribed steroid cream for flare up(only have had to use it once) and other than that to avoid perfumed products (like Johnsons),use sorbolene or QV for bathing and as cream. My friend tried MooGoo and it helped her LOs eczema. Maybe go see your GP.

    Perhaps put a thin towel on her neck when she's feeding?

    DD had the same thing, and although at 6 weeks she's a bit young, we put DD on her tummy in the bath so she would lift her head up to make cleaning easier.

    Agree to use non-perfumed bath products, a few drops of organic olive oil is better.

    Good luck!

    DS has the same issue - his is from water and sweat though. We use a cortisone cream when it flares up and it works well.

    DS had that and a few drops of olive oil in the bath sorted it out.

    Put a tea towel/hand towel under the chin when feeding, just try to keep the area dry.

    Yes I would also say a hand towel/washer under the chin and also corn flour/baby powder to keep it dry. It may cake a bit but that was the only thing that worked for DD. At every feed I would just wash the area and reapply the powder. It worked great when she was teething as well.

    Be careful with baby powder, it can get in the lungs & cause breathing issues. Better to use corn flour from the cooking isle.

    I always used cold pressed sesame oil, even olive oil would work, just helps to waterproof that area, and help it heal.
