Hello,

By what you say I feel that this could be atopic dermatitis keeping in mind the age of the baby.

Topical emollients should be working well in this scenario. But skin conditions are best diagnosed and treated after seeing them directly I suggest you upload some images here so that we can guide you better.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
