Dear Nicky
I think that you should a) get a second opinion from a Dermatologist because he could be suffering from eczema or atopic dermatitis b)consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings, but keep in mind that most people are on holiday right now) c) carry on with the cortisone creams until you can get appointments.
Hang in there
