Thank you for your query.

It appears that your son is having atopic dermatitis. As it has improved with the treatment that you are pursuing I suggest that you carry on with this or request your doctor to change to a steroid ointment which may gradually be reduced and stopped.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
