I am sorry your baby has this trouble. It could be ringworm which is contagious to you. It often starts on the feet and quickly spreads to other areas.
See pictures here:
Get some lamisyl and apply it to the affected spots. Wear rubber gloves so you do not catch it.
Please let me know how your baby is doing. Just press reply and I will be here for you.
