He should be evaluated by an allergist or immunologist if possible.

A food allergy panel, IgE and eosinophil count may be helpful. Other triggers include dust mold, and other allergens. Keep skin well moisturized with a baby eczema cream and avoid skin immersion and irritation. There are more rare skin conditions which should also be considered. Maintain a diary of possible triggers and flare ups. Watch for signs of wheezing and cough
