Of course the allusive rash. Sigh.

DS has some weird red/flaky skin rash on his face right under his nose. It started out as a little red bump, got bigger, then became crusty. So we thought it was impetigo. Well, after 3 rounds of antibiotics (both topical and oral) it is not gone. The pedi sent off a fungal swab. It just came back negative. So it's not fungus and it's not bacterial. The pedi is suggesting eczema/psorisis now. He prescribed a steriod cream which DH and I are not comfortable giving ds.

Ok, I've been putting TTO on it for a little over a week now. I just started with some calendula gel I have.

Other suggestions?

It's not anywhere else on his body. Just the face under his nose.
