Infant with rd blotches over the body, get raw on scratching, diagnosed as contact dermatitis. What could it be?

please discuss with your doctor . By this time it should have been all right . It may not be due to milk allergy . Rather baby soaps, baby oils some times may cause allergy leading to this condition .
please consult pediatrician /dermatologist . A proper diagnosis is must for proper treatment .
Protect the baby from insects ,mosquitoes .Please use cotton linens .Some times synthetic materials may be responsible for allegy .
Hope your baby be alright soon .
