Rash on baby

Good day

My 11 month baby boy was diagnosed with skin problem eczema, and I used Epizone E , Epizone A and currently using Advantan milk, for a while it was working and so results but now my son has a rash on his face as well as upper body and I don’ t know what to do now.

My other concern is his soft spot on his head has not closed yet is this a concern in a 11 month baby.

Please advice

You do not need to worry about your baby's fontanelle, the soft area on the top of his head. This usually closes by the age of 18 months.
Your baby's eczema appears to be worsening. I am not happy about using Advantan milk on his face or neck as it is a moderate to strong cortisone treatment.Bath your baby every day. Do not use soap but use the Epizone E instead of soap while he is in the bath. After bathing him moisturise his skin all over using Epimax Cream. After that apply Mylocort ointment to his rash. If it not better after 5 days it would be best to take him to be seen by a paediatrician so that a proper diagnosis can be made of his skin rash and the correct treatment advised.
