my 8 month old has had a red blotchy rash on his face for the past month that comes and goes. He has been seen by 2 drs. One said a vrus and the other said food allergies. I put hydrocortisone cream on it and Aquaphor. Now after his bath tonite, I noticed a big red odd-shaped blotch, which was skin colored in the middle on his arm and shoulder. Also, he has raised bumps on the other shoulder in the same spot. His head and neck have been unusually dry and red lately too. I am so nervous for him. Does anyone have this problem or any suggestions as to what it might be? Thank you for your help.

Eczema? My son has it and after baths his would flare up and get itchy and splotchy. Scented anything including baby soap made it worse.
