Q.

Itching feet

My 20months baby have a problem with itching feet especially at night. He rubs them together or scratch them until he develops fine pimples, this keeps him awake at night. Been to Doc and have given Allegex and Laminisil (not sure of spelling), Benzyl, but nothing seem to help. Is there anything one can recommend I use to stop itching? Please help

The usual cause of these symptoms in babies is scabies. Please ask your doctor to treat your baby for this condition.
