Eczema. An eczema rash covering most of the skin on a baby's face and head. Eczema is a superficial skin inflammation characterised by an itchy rash and small blisters that weep and become crusted. The condition is sometimes triggered by an external factor, but often the cause is unknown. An inherited form of eczema - atopic eczema - is common in babies, usually appearing between the ages of two months and 18 months. Treatment includes drugs to prevent itching and infection, and creams or ointments to keep the skin soft.
