Rash on 8 month old

My son is 8 months old and has a rash on the side of his cheek by his mouth. His pediatrician prescribed an ointment to apply two to three times a day. It ends up drying up his skin and it gets flaky. I've stopped using it and instead apply eucerin. It keeps it moist and it does seem to help for a bit however by the next day or so it returns. Any suggestions?

    I don't have a clue. Our 15 year old is battling something that sounds very similar . She has it on her forehead, under her nose, chin, hand and arm. We think it is related to something she ate but cannot seem to figure it out because these patches were going away. To me they look like eczema, is that what your son's looks like too?
      Is it from teething? My five month old has started drooling a lot and she is getting a rash but only if I don't get the drool wiped up. It's gone once I keep her dry.
