thanks for asking
i gone through your question and understand your concern,
your 3.5 baby girl started developing some problem on her face,ears, neck and chest.
some time baby get these type symptoms ,due to milk or dairy product used by mother .
as if i am your treating paediatrician, i would advise your to stop milk and diary product. if skin problem improve when you stop these product, then stop using these products till your baby is 1 year of age and not give dairy milk or dairy product till one year of age.
hope if able to answer your query
