Is this eczema?

My 1 year old has a red, dry slightly scaley/shiney spot on his face, about the size of a pea. It's been there for a few weeks now and seems to be getting larger and more red. It doesn't seem to be causing him any soreness or itching.
Does this sound like eczema and if so does anyone know of anything that can get rid of it pls?
thanks in advance...

Sounds like it could be. Try putting some E45 on it. My ds had patches when he was wee. The gp gave us some industrial moisturiser that did the trick. You probably don't need anything like a steroid cream if it isn't weepy. I'd give the E45 a go and if it doesn't go in a few days go to gp and ask for something better.
