Does he prefer to have his face sleeping on the side? DS2 was quite a sweaty baby and always slept with his head one way and developed quite a heat rash (very similar to this) on that side.
It seemed to come up more when he was feeding? Maybe because he was working up a sweat! I didn't use anything but a cool face washer, it seemed to go away after 12ish weeks.
I'd still raise it with the GP.

To the PP that asked - yes he favours that side sleeping & the rash appears worse when feeding. He just woke and I thought it was actually looking better....until he just started feeding and all of a sudden it's bright red instantly. Weird. He doesn't appear sweaty or hot either.

Update: doctor thinks it is the milk rash and nothing to be worried about yet. Have another appointment on Friday for other issues, so will check it again.
He did say not to put anything on the skin at all (not even sorbolene which I was doing to the dry bits) as this can clog the pores and make it worse when inflamed. So thought I'd share that part in case anyone else has this issue too

My baby is having the exact same thing happen! we've seen several different doctors/nurses/pharmacist/midwives and nobody seems to be able to help.
We've been told heat rash and milia several times but if this is the case why does it flare up during feeds?!?! (Bub drinks room temp)
after trying several different formulas including ha today we've started pepti jnr
please keep me updated with how you go and if anything helps xx
