I have a 5-year old son. When he turned 3, he got sores around his mouth and on his cheek. I took him to Doc and they prescribed him an anti-fungal cream and I applied it faithfully every day. It eventually went away after a few months. One year later, the same sores popped up just as he turned 4. Took him to Doc again and he prescribed a antibiotic cream. Again, took month to clear up. One year later (about 2 months ago) the sores came up again. I decided I would experiment a little, especially because nothing Doc gave worked. So I tried this cream on his face. Three days later- sores gone. No joke. I am pretty sure now that he has severe eczema on his cheeks which is exacerbated when it gets really cold. I will never go without this stuff again.
