is it under his neck?
It could be eczema-is it hot there by you?

chafed...dry skin....
don't wash him down so much, but use a baby wipe occassionally...
I always used cocount oil instead of moisterizers and never had an issue plus they had the sofest skin!

my daughter its chaffed under her neck..
and on her arm rolls. (haha).
So i wipe them down and I let them dry before I let them
uhh... roll back together?.. I think the wet skin and sweat
makes them Chaffed.

This might be a long stretch, but this happened to my daughter (who has a chubby little neck as well!) She had gotten thrush, and from drooling, I guess the yeast infection got into her little fat neck rolls. I couldnt figure out why it wouldnt go away because I tried the powder to dry it out, diaper rash cream, everything. Well yeah, it was a yeast infection from her mouth. So you never know! Good luck!
