    Hi there
    My LO has reached three months and weighed in today at 16llbs!!!

    Like her daddy she has a few "chins":winkwink:

    The skin has got very red and sore-we are vigilant to clean the area but it is still red and sore. after cleaning the neck today and whilst drying with some cotton wool pads there was some blood (tiny amount) and she cried.

    Anyone else have a cherub like me and what have you done to keep there neck sore free please?

    I have sudocrem, bepanthan and metanium in the house.

    My instinct would be to use sudocrem?

    I would use the sudocrem on it.

    Jessicas neck was going a bit red a few weeks ago and I just used sudocrem and made sure I washed and dryed it properly every day. Its tons better now. :flower:

    My LO had a this a little bit. I just made sure I paid special attention to washing and drying it. I would have used sudocrem on it, but it had cleared up by itself. Just sounds like a tiny bit of trapped moisture, so I'd say use sudocrem to protect it while it heals.

    Fin's wasn't this bad but not far off and we'd been moisturising it every morning and evening. We now use Asda's Little Angels Liquid Talc and it's not red at all now.

    I'd use sudocrem til it's less angry, then try liquid talc x

    Sudocrem is good :) though we went to the docs as jaydens looked really red, we got Timodine cream on prescription x

    Vasaline to prevent the problem, Sudacrem to heal the problem, sometimes now though all I use is a bit of johnsons talcum powder as its more food spills than milk spills under the chin :D

    I use Aquafor, and it works beautifully. I'm not sure if it's sold in the UK by the same name or not. My little one is quite chunky and definitely has neck rolls!
