DS2 is nearly 7wks and has had this rash for about a week that isn't getting any better.
Is this the typical 'milk rash' common for this age? It looks a bit too severe to me (it also extends to his ears and scalp but you can't see that in pic).
It goes bright red and raised when he's hot or has his head leaning on my arm when feeding too.

What does this rash look like?

Heat rash. Try placing a cool wet towel on him to see if it goes away. He could be a 'hot' baby.

I would show my pharmacist. I hope its gone soon

Not sure how a pharmacist would help, they aren't qualified to look at rashes.
Looks like a normal milk rash to me. They often flare up when baby is upset or hot.

A pharmacist would have more idea than the general public.

Thanks ladies - we have a doctors appt on Monday for other issues anyway, so will have this looked at if still around.
I'll try the wet cloth thanks - is there anything else I should do? Cream etc? He's quite unsettled at the moment so no idea if it's causing any discomfort.

Try dabbing some expressed milk on to it. It's a great cure-all.

Looks like what my ds2 had that young, it turned out to be eczema.

I am not sure but it does look very concerning to me. I would get to the GP asap.
