Paediatrician

This does sound like eczema.Not all, but most babies with eczema are allergic.You have tried putting your baby on NAN HA and using aqueous cream with no benefit. It would be a good idea to take your baby son to be seen and tested by a paediatric allergist. There are experts in all the main centres in SA. If you have any difficulty in finding a paediatric allergist in your area please write back and I will advise you.
