It's not in the classic eczema places (arm pits, elbow and knee creases, cheeks...), but that's my best guess. And my next best guess is that it is food allergies/intollerances that are contributing. Are you breastfeeding? Have you eliminated anything from your diet?

ETA - why don't you spend some time reading on the allergies forum? You will also discover there that some mamas would consider the intollerances to be liver-related. (read the detox-guinea pig thread)

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

Those pictures jsut take my breath away. Poor baby!
I am on the allergy bandwagon. My DD had some intolerances and she was diagnosed with "the worst case of baby acne" the doc had ever seen. Yea, NOT acne at all.

Notice her left eye?

I would start by eliminating the things you can test for. Has the rash bee ncultured at all? That would take care of # 1& 2 on your list. Also, if you are bf'ing I would seriously consider removing dairy and eggs from your diet. See if it makes any differance. Does he have any refulx or bowel issues?

Some other things that come to mind:
What kind of stuff do you wash him with? How often? What laundry soap do you use? Do you use different soap on his stuff than yours? What are your towels washed in? Do you have any mold issues in the bathroom or other areas?

W (26) and C (27) parenting G (11/06 ) and D (2/09 ) plus a new one (3/11)
Sometimes the greener grass is actually AstroTurf, a false promise and nothing more.

First of all, he is *gorgeous*. What a sweet face!

Alimentum powder has corn the ready to feed does not.... I think it would be worth a trial of the ready to feed only right now to see if that makes a difference. Is that all he is consuming? No additional vitamins?

Personally I would be making my own Weston Price formula if I had to do formula but I know that is not for everyone.

I would not use Restore, that has orange, correct? Any enzymes? Both of those ingredients would send my son's skin into rash city. We like All Free & Clear.

I highly recommend probiotics, a baby version with bifidobacterium. Look into biotin and c'mon over to post in the Allergies Forum, we have discussed babes like this many times before. What do you know about the birth mother's health? Has he been vaccinated and what other medical interventions has he received?

to you too, it must be hard to deal with the m/c and a very difficult baby.
