if it does not clear up take him to the Dr. My daughter had really bad skin problems and we had to go to a skin specialist to get a cream that helps her with the ichies and bumps. She also had what you are describing. The dr said that it was ezema.

My little girl has had the same problem that I believed was eczema. My sister & I had it really bad as an infant. I was using bath wash & lotion with perfumes in it, such as Johnson's Bedtime Wash & lotion & the regular Johnson's baby lotion. I have recently switched her to Aveeno & it has cleared up tremendously! Her scalp is still a little dry, but not nearly as bad as before, but if it is eczema & this doesn't help your doctor should have a certain cream to clear it up. Good luck with everything!!!

both my boys have eczema. I use aveeno baby and periodically give them oatmeal baths. I also use dreft to wash their clothes and run it through the rinse cycle twice. Keep a humidifier going and talk to the doc about a hydrocortizone cream. only give them baths every couple days and make sure to moisturize! this is what the doc told me and it seems to work! hope this helps:)

I went to see a skin specialist as it got worse 2 days ago - he has given me oilatum soap bar to use in his baths...hydrocortisone cream to be applied over his body and zinc oxide to be used over the folded skin and paraffin oil to be used on his head - I sure hope it'll make him better. but he is looking slightly better. does removing cradle cap from his head make things worse? and is it caused by the food I m eating?

when my son was about a month old he started to develop cradle cap and eventually he had patches (rash looking) all over his body. We tried numerous prescriptions and saw several different speciality doctors but nothing seemed to work. We finally found a product call Aveno Baby..it gently cleanses and Soothes Dry skin (which come from rashes) and helps heal it..it also helped my son relax since he wasnt uncomfortable from his rash. You can purchase it just about anywhere, I got mine from wal-mart. let me know if you have any other questions.

My 8 week old also has cradle cap, no other rashes. She has a bit of hair but not much. I've switched shampoo and only use about a pea size drop on her heard and really scrub it with a face cloth and rinse really well. I also got a baby comb and brush and use that on her head, and it takes off the skin that is stuck there really well. It also went down to her fore head, and I put baby oil gel all over her then use the comb and brush, and that really helps too. Hope it works out for you.

Could just be a form of baby eczema which he will grow out of. Use the aqueous cream in his bath instead of any baby bath products. What washing powder are you using on his clothes? Could be an idea to try a few different ones-I can only use Ariel and my daughter can only use Fairy as we have sensitive skin.

Let me know how you get on. If necessary take him back t the doctor and get them to take it a bit more seriously, you are his mum, you know when he is not well.
