    I was thinking the same thing. DS eczema started out looking like this. Hope he's feeling better soon!

    to me it looks like eczema. my dd had it in exact same spot. does he scratch at it?
    it also look like a hives rash...could he be allergic to any your your own moisturisers or perfumes? make up? do u add anything into his baths?
    your best bet is to get a doctor to check it out.
    dermeeze is very soothing for red hot skin in the mean time.

    I agree, it looks like eczema. DS2's skin was like that from a few weeks. I thought it was just milk pimples at first but nope, turned out to be eczema.

    Eczema is what I was concerned about. The skin on his ears is now very flaky/dry rather than pimples, but I have no previous experience with this.

    Eczema is apparently a symptom of dairy allergy/intolerance, which is what we are going to be tested for (hence doctors appt Monday). Plenty of breast milk has been applied - due to his excessive vomiting all day and night so that hasn't helped sadly.

    DS2 is not a happy camper at the moment, the poor love...I can't put him down for a second today, he's barely slept.

    I only use organic/natural products in his bath and haven't been using perfume or body creams (apart from sorbolene) while b/f. Strangely it's mainly one side though too?? Hhhmm.

    Oh wow, i never knew that. Although it explains a lot as DS2 has never really been able to tolerate dairy.

    Don't put anything in his bath water, just plain water. Once I stopped putting products in DD1's bath as a baby her skin was much better. When it got dry we used QV oil from the chemist, bi-carb soda in the bath water also helped when it got red and inflamed.

    DD's baby acne looked very similar and she had flaky, dry ears too. It took a few weeks but cleared on its own. Oh, and it got redder when she was hot too. But can't hurt to have the GP look at it.

    Pesca could you let us know what happens at your appointment on Monday? My bub has developed a rash which looks very much like your DS on her cheeks and chin. I took her to the dr and she said to try clonea(anti fungal) with bepanthen over it which I did with no improvement. I have to take her again now.

    I'm sure it cannot be very comfortable for them

    QV bath oil and dermeze ointment, I highly recommend those.
    Ds had a few bouts of it then didn't have eczema at all for a year, he has only just got it again now on the one spot on the side of his head.

    Funny that you mention allergies, I never knew that! But I am thinking he has an intolerance to cows milk so I now wonder if there's a link. I will talk about it to the dietitian on our next visit next month.

    If he has an intolerance and that's what's causing it, wouldn't ebm make it worse? Not sure, just a thought.
