Once the drug store opens (and DH gets up with DD) I am going to go to the store and get some hydrocortisone, eucerin, and unscented detergent. Its mostly on his face but I will switch detergents (we use Tide) for him. I'll let it go for a day and if it doesnt look any better I am taking him to the DR.

Since I dont BF I dont think it would be a food allergy although I'm not sure. He has been throwing up in the evenings as well. But its only with his last bottle and has been happening for the last 3-4 nights.

My poor little man
Huh, I wonder if that's why my eczema-y little guy would rub his face all over my shoulder/chest, too. Our pedi recommended Cetaphil, I think, plus the steroid cream I need to pick up tomorrow. again!
