Rash on my 6 week old son...

My son has a rash on his neck under his ears and alround the back of his neck under his hairline and sometimes on his forehead and head. It looks like baby acne but gets very red when he's eating. I'm not sure if it's from formula dripping down his neck or from when he's spitting up in bed and it drips down the side of his head. Any help?

it's probably a reaction to the formula. But if he's spitting up in the bed and you don't see it in time, it does have acid in it from his stomach, and can aggravate his skin. Put some desitin on it and it should at least make it feel better for him. As far as keeping it from happening again, when feeding, stop often enough to clean up. At night put him on his side. They have products to help him stay on his side. Or use two rolled up towels and put one in front of him, and one at his back. If this doesn't work, call your doc.
