mine is 7 months too;he's got a little patch on his cheek exactly how you're describing it & my doctor said it's eczema.he said to just keep it clean with a warm cloth & soap;rinse & dry & put vaseline on it.I use coconut vaseline plus I keep a humidifier running plus a humidity kettle however it's very dry through the winter where I live;in my mind it should help becuz it's basically dry skin right

I'm a 13 year old girl, and I've had eczema since I was born. Mine is really severe, so I have obvious dry, flakey red patches on the crooks of my arms and the backs of my neck and knees all of the time. I also babysit a couple kids with eczema, and we all like using Cetaphil lotion. It works wonders, and it's hypoallergenic, but I would definitely consult your doctor first, especially since your child is so young.

Good luck!!
