It's always best to still consult with your child's pediatrician just top rule out anything else.
Toy Tips tested out some brands of moisturizing products that are appropriate for children and adults.¬† These made our top list.
Carmex Everyday Healing Cream.¬† It's non-greasy which makes it easy to put on your child without a thick residue on your own hands. Designed to penetrate dry, rough and cracked skin, it worked well on heels, elbows and hands.¬† It¬† does have a softer scent of the regular Carmex lip balm. We suggest adding a coat of that on your child's lips after as protection. Now that these come in different flavors, have your choose the one they like best. It will help make it easier for you to have them wear it.¬† For a little extra something for Mom, the Ultra Hydrating¬† Moisture Plus lip balm with SPF15/Sunscreen come in stylish tubes.
