Here are some basic medicines for new baby. Of course, always consult your child's pediatrician before administering any medication.

  • Triple antibiotic ointment - This topical cream can be applied to scratches, cuts, or abrasions to prevent infection.
  • Diaper rash cream - Look for a product that contains zinc oxide, which is best for soothing irritated skin.
  • Hydrocortisone cream This anti-inflammatory salve is sold in pharmacies in 1/2- or 1-percent strengths. Both are mild enough for infants and are used mainly for eczema (a red, scaly rash); dry, itchy skin; or to treat bug bites.
  • Gripe water, anti-gas drops, or other gas or colic remedy.
  • Baby-safe sunscreen lotion.
  • Baby-safe insect repellent.
  • Baby shampoo or baby wash.
  • Baby moisturizing cream.
  • Saline nose drops or spray and a bulb syringe (also known as a nasal aspirator) for clearing your baby's stuffy nose.
