Q.

Could it be Eczema

Good day,

My son has developed a rash on his body which is sometimes red / white fine pimples on his back &  stomach - it only developed recently. My ped done blood tests to check for allegies &  eczema which came back neg - he tested on wheat, eggs &  I dont know what else.

His scalp is also very dry I have been using Olive Oil which is helping.

Please advise,
Thanks

Your son's rash does not sound like eczema or seborrhoea. Also he is not allergic which is against his rash being eczema. As you do not have a clear diagnosis of this skin rash, it would be best to consult a dermatologist so that a proper diagnosis can be made and the correct treatment prescribed if necessary.
