hello good evening, by the query you have posted and the symptoms you have told it looks like asthma with atopic dermatitis . the reason he has a bad oral thrush may be because of any inhaler he isn using with the steroidal dased drug, off course 13 month olsd child will need a spacer to use the inhalers. so please re check with your doctor for better assessment, also the skin condition you told might be atopic dermatitis or acute urticaria. The treatment and diagnosis will be better if examined by a doctor. thank you.
