Q.

4month old has a rash on his face

My 4month old has recently developed a rash only on his face. Could this be caused from teething? He has recently started eating purity - could this be an allergic re-action? I've been putting fragrance free baby cream on his face but it doesn't seem to be helping. Do you have any other suggestions on what I could put on his face? Please help.
Thank you,

This sounds like facial eczema. It is best for your baby to be seen by a paediatrician so that the correct diagnosis can be made and the correct treatment started.
