Week Six Baby Rash

So LO has what they call the week six rash all over her face, ears and some on her neck. As a mother I thought it was bugging her and therefore asked the Dr to check it out last week at our week 6 post natal mother and child check. Dr then prescribed Cetraben only to flare it up even more.

After asking around I have been informed that it is something to do do with milk and it eventually goes away on it’s own. So for any new moms out there experiencing the same ordeal I would say do not put anything on it unless it was really bothering your LO. I wish I could turn back time and stop myself from using that Cetraben.

However you will be happy to know that keeping LO dry as possible and making sure to change her clothes if she spits out her milk so it will not lay against her skin is helping hasten the healing process.
