Brief Answer:
Please upload an image

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I would request you to upload image of the affected areas. It will help me to evaluate the condition. As of now you could also apply some moisturizer like aloe vera lotion topically.

I would await your response based on which I will guide you further. Let me know if I could help further.

Regards

Brief Answer:
Due to vitamin B deficiency

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for uploading the image. It seems that your child has cheliosis, a condition that occurs due to deficiency of certain B vitamins. You need to give vitamin B complex supplements like A to Z syrup 5ml once daily for the next 5-7 days. Hopefully the condition will improve by then.
