Thanks for writing to health care magic.

The problem your child is facing could be because of several causes.
One of them could be allergic dermatitis.

We treat allergic dermatitis with antihistaminics.
In a case of skin allergy we should monitor for respiratory distress as that is a emergency.

Identifying the allergen is difficult but if found should be avoided.
Hope this helps
Take care
