In brief: Eczema

Baby eczema (also called infant eczema or atopic dermatitis) appears in about 10% to15% of children.
It shows up as patches of red, leathery, somewhat blistery-looking skin. The skin is almost always tender, itchy, dry, and rough.While it may appear just about anywhere on baby's body, eczema most often occurs on baby's cheeks, and at the joints of their arms and legs.
