Thanks for writing in.

The symptoms that you have fit perfectly to Scabies.

It is an infection with a mite. You may have acquired it from a hotel or some other person.
It is highly contagious and may get transferred to the little one.

My suggestion is that you see your dermatologist again and discuss this possibility with him.

If it actually turns out to be scabies, then you will need to apply permethrin 5 % cream all over the body at night. Repeat after 1 week.

You will also need to take anti allergic tablets for 2 weeks or so.

Please see your doctor again and keep me posted about the progress.
