Dribble rash on thumb? Lock Rss

Hi - My 7 month old loves to suck his thumb and because he is currently teething there is dribble galore!! When he gets dribble rash on his chin I usually put paw paw ointment on it and it clears it up and creates a little barrier on his skin so it doesnt come back as bad.....and I have also been putting this on his thumb when I know that he will be playing and not sucking on it. But I was wondering what other mum's do to prevent / treat this. Thanks

i posted somewhere else someone had a similar problem, i suggested using that clear nail polish that stops people from biting their nails. It is supposed to taste bad, so i would think it would taste bad for a baby as well. Might also be a good way to get them to stop sucking on their thumb?
