I agree with those that say that it looks like eczema. DD gets a rash just like that, hers is from dairy and from some detergents.

My ped told me if all else failed to try the hydrocortisone, so I did after trying other things.
Just wanted to mention that because hydrocortisone is a steroid that your son's system can become dependant on it and if you use it regularily he may have an outbreak when you stop using it just because you are not using it. I'm sure that you're doc made you aware of this though

Breastmilk didn't work on her skin either.
Hope it clears up soon, I got a lot of comments too until it went away.
Same for us that it was MILK that was the problem, not dairy. DD can eat cheese, yogurt, etc. but can't drink milk. (and she is not as sensitive now either, at 2.5)
Also, doesn't it make sense that rubbing BM on thier faces wouldn't help? BM contains the allergen that is causing the problem in the first place! Unless it is an environmental cause, BM won't help, I wouldn't think!
