Hello . I have gone through your query n I can understand your concern fully . Hicoup syrup is given to relieve the baby from itching so don't worry you can give him ,,if he's not able to sleep coz of itching at night. Liquid paraffin is given for dry skin . You can use Cetaphil moisturizing lotion as day cream Alokem gel +calamine lotion,mix both n apply 2-3 times per day ( it will relieve itching n promote healing). Cetaphil body cleanser for body wash If any further questions please contact us. Thanks
