I would ask for a referral to an allergist. It could be the fabric your baby’s clothes are made from. Most have some synthetics in them and you may have to find 100% cotton. Your baby could also be allergic to some foods.
It could even be Adelaide water. I know a little one whose Dad was transferred to Adelaide with his job within a month the little boy was red and scaly all over, especially his legs. They tried a huge variety of soaps etc., medications, creams and ointments, and numerous allergy tests. The discovered it was the water and were told to wash him as little as possible as the water was aggravating it. That was OK in Winter but not in Summer. His Dad applied for an urgent transfer and was given one pretty quickly. On returning back to NSW his eczema started to show signs of healing within a fortnight. Not in his particular case, but I also know somebody who couldn’t use water that had been through a water softener.
