I am not at all happy with this story of your son's illness. This is a far too common problem of a young child being seen numerous times without a clear diagnosis being made of his illness. You have not even been given the name of your son's skin rash, which sounds like eczema from your description.Your main aim must be to get a definite diagnosis of your son's problems so that he can be placed on the correct tretament. Obviously he does not need antibiotics again.He seems to be an allergic little boy as many of his symptoms which you have mentioned here could be due to allergies. He must be seen by a paediatric allergist ASAP so that he can be put on the path to good health. If you cannot find a paediatric allergist in your area let me know in which area or province you live and I will advise someone to see your son.
