It seems that your baby is showing the first signs of having eczema. It would be a good idea to change his formula to a low allergy formula such as NAN HA. Do not use any soaps on his skin. Use Epizone-E instead of soap in his bath as a soap substitute and afterwards apply Epimax Junior cream to his face and to any other dry areas on his body or limbs.
