    Default Bubs with dry skin

    Hello all, just a quick question, my girl is starting to have a little but of dry skin patches. Would you moisturize morning and night? Or either or. Thinking of using qv wash and the moisturizer.
    Thank you

    hi nafsika, if the moisturiser is just something over the counter, I would use it every change, or morning and night. but if it is a medicated one, then only when the doctor recommended. the qv wash is quite gentle and not drying. also just olive oil is useful for dry skin. marie.

    that should be fine, I would only be careful if there was some cortisone in it. most of the over the counter products are very mild, and there would be zero risk of over using. check with your chemist, they will be most helpful. marie

    Can I recommend Caroline's cream then. I put it on my DS 3 or 4 times a day, before each nap and after his bath. It's been great for us. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1423107182.887693.jpg

    Most chemists stock it. It's around $30 for 500ml. If you can't find it in a chemist or health food shop, it can be ordered online. I really can't recommend this product to enough people!

    I've heard of that. Thank you.
    I'm thinking of the qv for now, as I have that on hand atm. Are you using that for dry skin or ezcema

    Try putting a teaspoon or two of coconut oil in the bath everyday. We have found it works wonders on our boy and he has extremly dry skin and eczema.
