Hi AMber.
Your son may be suffering from Atopic dermatitis. DOes any of your family members have asthma, dust allergy, allergic rhinitis, eczema? If yes, then possibility of AD becomes even stronger. I suggest you start using Desowen cream on the affected parts. See a good dermatologist near you for further consultation and information on AD.
