Customer Question

My daughter has developed some red blotches on her chin and side of her mouth. I'm not sure if this is due to drooling but it starting to get flaky and looks like the skin is peeling and looking tender. She has been scratching it a lot. I usually put aquaphor as a barrier to the drool, and cetaphil for moisturizer but it's not getting any better. I also tried applying breastmilk but it only gets better for a little bit and comes back. I'm not sure what else to do.
JA: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?
Customer: She has had it for a week now.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: She has eczema as well, but I'm not sure if this is eczema
