My 4 1/2 week old has an incredibly awful rash on his face, chest, back, and arms. It started right after I had to go on an antibiotic because of a bladder infection, so my doctor switched my antibiotic but isn't sure if it's causing the rash or not. It started off looking like baby acne, but has since progressed to full out red flaky rash oozing yellow stuff. Maybe eczema? My ped just said to keep lotion on the rash and come back in a week to see how it's doing. Anyone else run into a rash like this? Does it sound like an allergy thing? I feel awful for the little guy, it looks really itchy and uncomfortable. And it's covering his entire face, ears, etc. I would really appreciate any tips on how to soothe the rash and prevent it from coming back!
