In brief: Many causes

but at this age, this is how eczema (atopic dermatitis) often presents itself.
Cow's milk and egg are the most likely allergens. However a viral infection or drug reaction may also present in this manner. If there is pus, then impetigo should be ruled out . If the problem persists, see your doctor.
