Hi,
My baby is 1 year old now. She keeps on developing rashes at her cheeks starting from birth. Her skin is most of times dry. Are there any good links so that I can read / follow?

Thanks in advance.

Although one cannot make a diagnosis without a more thorough evaluation, recurrent red cheeks in afebrile babies is often a sign of eczema. I would encourage you to read about eczema in children at this website:

See your pediatrician for an accurate diagnosis and recommendations about treatment.
