It sounds as if your little toddler has developed an eczema rash on his cheeks. Try Mylocort ointment applied once daily to his cheeks.Apply this ointment in the mornings. Do not use this ointment for longer than 10 days. Apply Epimax Junior cream to his cheeks after bathing him in the evening and also to any parts of his body with dry skin.
