it’s hard to tell.. go to the pedia or derma to have it checked.

My baby was like that too. I used a lotion La Roche Posay Lipikar Baume AP+ and La Roche Posay Syndet Lipikar for body wash. Just two days the skin returns to normal.

My baby has the same. His Paediatrician said its dermatitis.

Is the dry skin making the skin look "tight"? If so, it could be a rash that occur due to the heat and lack of hydration.

Do skip soap and long tub sessions, which can irritate skin and keep your baby's surroundings humidified.

I don't think it looks like eczema. Have you tried putting extra virgin coconut oil on it and seeing if it goes away?

Might be. Consult a paediatrician.
