Brief Answer:
This is eczema - don't worry.

Detailed Answer:

Hi...

I sympathize with the kid and understand your concern. The trick of the management is keeping the skin moist and never allowing it to be dry. For this oil massage and lotions like Atogla will help.

Regarding cure options - eczema is a sort of allergy...allergies can only be controlled and can never be cured. But usually kids grow out of it...that is as the age progresses, they become better starting from 6 months.

Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help at any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.
