Thanks for the query.

From the outset, it seems to be an allergic sensitivity condition, probably maltreated by bunch of medicines. It does not look like a case which can be treated in couple of months, but it might take a while as the symptoms seem to be chronic.
- It is not clear since when was your child affected (when was his first symptoms)      
- any allergy to mother?
- The colour of skin?
- Whether there is bleeding?

Your child needs to be seen in detail. A complete history and proper physical examination and assessment are needed. I suggest you to not to repeat allopathic medication because skin is very sensitive. I also advice you to repeat the allergic sensitivity test.

All the allopathic medicine you have taken to your child is cortisone and salicylic acid which has their own effect; Your child needs natural cure.

You can consult to a doctor or you may start with “Ars iod 30” twice daily for 3 week and sulpher 1M once a week under guidance of your doctor. He can be reviewed after 3 weeks to see the progress.

Hope this answers your query. If you have any further queries, I will be glad to assist you.
