My son had baby acne around 2-4 months old, but it showed up gradually. If the rash is swelling like hives, you should call your doc....or go to the ER. I doubt it's the seafood you've eaten. It usually takes more than a few times to have an allergic reaction to something on a small child for the first time....usually. I'm no doc, but I wouldn't think it's the seafood. The other thing I would wonder is if it's roseola (my son had it). It's a viral thing and the rash starts on the face and head and spreads around the body...usually accompanied by a mild fever. I'm not sure about the cortisone on his face. You may want to ask a doc about that one. I'm not sure that OTC creams were meant for the face. There are special ones for the face, tho I can't think of any off hand, and even so, they are prescription. Good Luck.
