It is indeed possible that your baby has developed eczema on her legs. It is also possible that your baby is allergic to the inkomazi. Stop giving her inkomazi and try her on a soya growth formula such as Isomil 3 instead of milk. Apply Epimax cream to her legs twice a day. This should clear up her rash.
