Your baby seems to have eczema. Try a little Mylocort ointment once daily for no more than 7 days to the rash. Keep him well moisturised especially after you bath him using Epimax as a moisturiser.Keep on with the moisturiser for as long as is necessary.If his rash does not clear please take him to be seen by a paediatrician.
