FWIW, my DS's rash looked a lot like that when I ate eggs and soy. I hope you get something figured out.

Ds's rash isn't much worse after I ate the sweet potato last night. I'm going to give some to him tonight.
Sorry, forgot to return to this thread...
With that history, by far and away the thing I'd suspect most is gluten. I *hope* you're OK with gluten now, but another possibility is that during the months you didn't eat it, your gut healed. When you reintroduced it, you wouldn't necessarily get the old reactions, and/or it might take a while for them to manifest again (while the gluten irritates your gut again). We reintroduced gluten for DS 3 months ago, and I'm still very watchful for that happening for him.
The concern here would be that either a) your babe is gluten intolerant as well, so he's reacting when you eat gluten, or b) he's reacting to *your* gluten reaction (which might not be obvious to you yet in terms of impacting how you feel).
I'd try a couple of weeks off gluten (I know, it's a hard one to take out!), and see how that does for your babe - and also watch yourself for any subtle improvements. Gluten can be really insidious in its effects...
