Brief Answer:
Apply moisturizing lotion with calamine on face.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

In infants, the cause for itching on face may be due to dry skin or some allergy to clothes.

Examine carefully the clothes and bed and put soft and smooth clothes.

As there is no rash and eruption, nothing to worry.

Apply a moisturizing lotion or cream twice or thrice daily to his face to prevent drying.

If the itching is significant and doesn't subside with above measures, you can apply calamine containing moisturizing lotions such as Dermadew Caloe or Calosoft lotion externally over face twice daily and especially before sleeping at night.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
