My DD has been using a pacifier since birth practically, but we've noticed just over the last 3-4 weeks she's begun to have a rash on her chin. Is this from teething, the pacifier, new foods, or what? Anyone experience this? Any good hints on beating it?

Thanks for any help!!

I'd bet on it being a teething rash, especially if she's drooling a little bit extra. We beat DS's droolrash by smearing a dab of vaseline on the particularly wet spots and by wiping off his chin hundreds of times a day. (Drool is slightly acidic, so the vaseline acted as a bit of a barrier until it was wiped off.)

My baby gets a chin rash when something irritates it... like clothing that has a ruffle and brushes up against her wet, drool soaked chin. It will then just get worse with regular things hitting her chin... I use lanolin on it and it goes away within a day or so.

Also, check your pacifier regularly for mold. With ours it got a little moldy around the connection point of the sucker and holder... even with regular boiling.
