Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding skin allergy on different parts of body of your son. You have consulted skin specialist and used so many creams, ointments & lotions but all are helpless. Your son is most probably having dermatitis.

I would like to tell you to consult chest & allergy specialist for skin test for identification of allergen , that may be desensatised by suitable vaccines.

I hope this will help him.
