Non itchy red spots on babys face

hi i have a one year old boy who has had recurrent red spots on face for 6 months now. it appears on face as tiny dots but soon become bigger and change to dark red color then scars over. they are not itchy and doesn't affect him in any way and doesn't occur anywhere else. He is not allergic to dairy or wheat .the doctors i have come across have no idea. Can someone recommend a cure or have you come across it with your child. i would be so grateful for advice

Hi,
How is feeling now?
I think it is Atopic Eczema. Atopic eczema usually present in first 6 months onwards. Usually appears on face or scalp. Clinical series of appearance includes erythematosus appearance initially followed by maculae’s then papules then plaques followed by oozing and crust formation.
Generally you can avoid exacerbating factors. Cut nail's short, file edges. Cotton clothes should be used and non-biological washing powders.
Emollients with steroid creams can be applied. Antibiotics can be considered for 10 days if eczema flares up.
Hope this helps.
Bye.

Hi,
Certain skin spots or lesions are common in children and these disappear or regress as the child grows up. But still to be sure and have a confirmed diagnosis , consult a pediatrician. Avoid using any medicated or steroid creams especially in children with a doctor's consultation.

Hi thanks for your comments. I have considered atopic eczema and ruled it out simply because I thought it had to be very itchy and my sons condition isn't. Can atopic eczema not be itchy in some instances. Also there have been no oozing or crusting over. Any other thoughts please. Much appreciated.
