See below: Since you have tried several creams, you need to see doctor at this point. You may also need to see allergist if it is felt to be an allergic reaction as well as possibly a dermatologist.

Before you see the doctor- also avoid using all scented body, face, soap + hair care products. Some babies are very sensitive to scents and dyes. Wash his clothing in scent free detergent, avoid use of fabric softeners. Also keep his nails short to minimize scratching. When you see the doctor make sure you have a list of all the products you use.

See a dermatologist: What are you waiting for? He probably has eczema & needs a prescription ointment.
