  • Is it red and raw and a little bit scaly? It sounds like eczema. My son gets it and it started about the same way. They start drooling around that age, and with the cold weather it is really ahrd on their skin. try to put aquafor on it as often as possible or some other heavy lotion.

  • It could be raw and/or chapped. It could be a pimple. It could be eczema. Talk to his pedi.
