Thank you for your query.
Your child is suffering from atopic dermatitis. This is type of allergy of the skin. The hydration of the skin should be maintained at all costs. Thsi requires a good quality moisteriser to be applied thrice daily which includes once after bath. The idea is to trap water between the skin and the emollient. Avoid dust, normal soap and powder at all costs. Use baby specific soap and shampoo. Short duration of topical steroids will decrease the lesions, after which the skin should be moist at all times.Usually babies get rid of this disease in their adolescent years. Wishing your child all the best , have a nice day.
