My five years old son got really dry skin but from last week after recovering from cold it's gone worse around his lip area and on cheeks it's really dry that skin start coming off and on his nose area it's really red and painful. It's not itchy though. I start putting moisturisers but after I wash his face and before putting any cream it's really bad. I stopped using soap or any cream with fragrance I make sure he drink a lot of water. But just wondering what causing all this ?
I just finished reading your comments. Have you taken your five year old son to his doctor. It sounds like you should have your son seen by his doctor and the sooner the better. It sounds like your son needs medical attention. There may be something in the moisturizers you're using on his face that he could be allergic to. Your son may need an antibiotic cream which can only be gotten by prescription ordered by a doctor. Don't wait. This sounds concerning. Take him to be seen by his doctor so the doctor can give your professional medical advice as to what is going on and more importantly what to do next. Eve
