what can be causing the rash like bumps on my sons face and head?

we have gone to the dr and cant seem to figure it out. i dont feel like its an allergic reaction because its only on his face and head and the benadryl doesnt make it any better. it may be from dry skin but lathering him up with lotion doesnt do much either. he itches it when he gets sleepy and had rubbed his ears so bad they were scaby. i just want my bug to be better and not scratch himself up.

  • Does your husband have a beard? My ds would get bumps all over his face and body if my husband didn't stay clean shaven. I guess the stubble irritated his skin.

  • It sounds like eczema? try putting coconut oil on it and eliminating dairy for at least six weeks
