Thanks, I don't use Vaseline because it's a petroleum by-product and the coconut oil has the same effect and actually has healing properties to boot. Vaseline is a good barrier, but I don't think it actually heals it
Thanks I will try the vinegar dilution and see if it helps if it flares up again. The coconut and oregano oil is clearing it up nicely now. I think his is nervous habit or something maybe.
It seems like oregano is acidic. So if he has a PH problem, it should be good for him. I'm glad to know about oregano and will try it, too.

I thought the oregano oil mixed with coconut would be gross enough to stop it but it wasn't lol. I like the idea of garlic - stinky, but probably effective hopefully, I'll give it a shot. thanks :)
He's well hydrated he drinks water and juice all the time so I don't think that's it, I think it's a nervous habit. It's finally clearing a bit with the coconut/oregano/garlic oil blend. It's yucky so he doesn't lick it lol

I agree with you on the sugar scrubs but not on vaseline. That is a petroleum byproduct and does nothing to heal skin. Coconut oil is natural and actually has skin healing properties and nutrients. Sugar is an awesome scrub though! :)
