Your baby seems to have a typical eczema rash. Allecet syrup will not clear this rash but will help to reduce the itching from the rash. Your baby can have 2.5ml of the Allecet syrup once daily.It is best to give this dose before bedtime. Apply Epimax Junior to her cheeks and arms and legs after bathing her in the evening.If this does not help you will have to start using a mild cortisione ointment such as Mylocort once daily when necessary.
