Rash on 4 year old, please help

AnswerMePlease27 posted:
My son keeps getting this rash on him. The first time it started as small on his left side of his rib cage. This time it has spread onto spots on his upper and lower back as well as ribs. I was told when bringing him to the pediatritian the first time that it was eczema, but now I feel like it may be something else. He also has re-occuring croup (not sure that would have anything to do with it) I do not know if it uploaded the photo but they are small patches with tiny bumpss and are dry like- never seepy. He doesn't complain of any pain and he does itch it sometimes. I've found hydrocortisone cream seems to help but, it pops right back up. Any ideas?? thank you so much
