If the exzema is really "contact dermatitis" or allergy triggered it does have a root problem and can be remedied. If the exzema is really "atopic dermatities" then that is an inherited condition that needs to be controlled but not likely curable.
The cases of exzema that improve by removing dyes and perfumes and commercial chemicals and don't require aggressive management are likely contact dermatitis. I should know, I get contact dermatitis from chemicals and bug bites and the reaction can be very mild to looking like I've walked in poison ivy. http://www.skincarephysicians.com/eczemanet/whatIs.html
By the way, your baby is a month old? Are you sure its not just baby acne? That will go away on its own, though a little aloe is nice and soothing and promotes healing.

STeff107 I was making a distinction between true exzema and the skin conditions people call or think is true exzema. It was not a judgment on what you personally have or have not tried.
