My dd's baby acne turned into eczema. She is gluten, dairy, soy, and egg intolerant so I had to eliminate those things from my diet while nursing her. I wouldn't give formula - they are based on proteins that are the top food allergens.

When did it start and was it all of a sudden? Do they itch or bother her? Usually skin reactions are allergy, like PP stated. I'd start off with trying to eliminate wheat and dairy (out of your diet) and see where that puts you. If not you can do allergy/sensitivity testing to know for sure.
