Dear Mumof2boys,

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about your younger son's skin irritation.

I wonder if you would be able to give us a bit more information to help us to support you fully with this. Has your paediatrician diagnosed your son with any specific skin condition? What is the cream that your doctor has given you? Does the sensitivity and rashes/boils only occur on his face or elsewhere on his body too? Are the boils filled with puss?

In terms of washing your son's face, generally cooled warm water and cotton wool is best for sensitive skin; unless your doctor has advised otherwise.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Best wishes,
