Your son appears to have eczema.Use a good moisturiser on his skin such as Epimax afrter bathing him. Do not use any soaps when bathing him, only use Epimax E instead of soap. He must only wear cotton cloththing. It would be best to try him on a low allergy formula such as NAN HA. If he cannot tolerate this he may need to go onto a soya formula.
