Skin problem

My baby of 1yr10months is having a dry and patchy skin. This started when he was 2months old. The doctor asked me not to use any perfumed cream on him but just Aquas Cream.
I've been doing that diligently but it doesn't seem to solve the problem.
I have seen sevaral doctors concerning this and they prescribed certain ointments which I've used and are also not helping.

Can anyone give me an advise on what to use, I'm desperate.

My son had the same problem, I bought a wonderful cream at the chemist called Rooibos Aquas Cream.

Try this, it might help
