I am not sure about the condition you mentioned and its best to visit a doctor for better understanding. It may be worthwhile to visit a Dermatologist and a paediatrician. This presentation can be seen with many skin diseases. The best option is to consult a Dermatologist in person to understand the problem and get it diagnosed. A proper treatment can then be started. Discuss the situation and hope it will be cleared in few days. Don't delay the appointment. You can use​​ a bland moisturiser till then
