My son (now 7 weeks) had a little heat rash when just born. Now that the rashes goes away (visibly), when i touch his face, its still rough.
my dear son also... he's one month old... is the rashes lik pimples??? getting more each day...
Now, can't see the rashes anymore but when feel, i can feel its still rough. how? johnson lotion can?
If the rash is bad, you can apply a bit of diaper rash cream. Some Mummies recommended this and I checked with my pediatrician who said it's fine.
I applied Desitin on my dear daughter's face and it works! The rash disappeared after two days.

hi november, what kind of rough face are you referring to? is it something like dry skin? if so, just keep cleaning with water. old ppl said these occur before baby face come in contact with our breast milk.
No, not dry skin!
Can't see anything except a little reddish but when feel with my hands, can feel its a bit rough .
you try clenaing it often with boiled water and see how it goes.. i heard its better not to apply anything to baby's face
mine too from the heat rashes. These 2 days, raining, the rashes disapper but still rough. I put a bit of PureLan. It helps.
ya.. think baby's skin will get better by its own.. in its most natural way. just clean it often will do.. we wont know what is it exactly we are applying on their face.. face very important... hehhe
ya.. you try and see how it gets.. think baby's skin renew itself much faster then we know.
if your baby is very young, try to leave it alone. dont't apply anything. Just keep it clean with water. Unless your kid has some skin alergy, the rash and roughness will eventually clear on it's own especially since they are so young and won't scratch them.
Yesterday when i pick my darling up from my mum's place, suddenly felt his face very smooth. My mum says she apply the pink johnson's baby lotion on his face. Really smooth and nice to touch . But this morning, again rough ! Guess have to apply untill it goes off!
What do you all think?
Actually you can apply some baby lotion on the face. But you have to know what causes the rash. Sometime, it maybe due to heat, or it maybe due to milk powder that causes the heat rash. Cos when my baby just born about 5 mths ago also have the same issue. But after i change to other type of milk powder that is not so heaty for her the rashes gone and now her skin is very smooth.
My baby doesn't seem to be itching or in any pain, just that its not smooth to touch.
I'm usung friso too...!
Could it be Friso?
Headache! I change from Mamex to Friso cuz of constipation, Now Rash! How?
what about milk rash? my dear son cheeks, chin, ear and neck is filled with milk rash.. i wipe his mouth after every feed still not okie. than i apply chamiloe liotion it helps but come back.. put pricky heat powder also no use..
where to buy this elomet??
