Is this exzema?

DS is 10 months and suffers from skin problems.

He gets red patches that look like hives that then turn into sore spots and eventually into pus-y scabs.

They appear in clusters on his torso, arms and on his head. He doesn't appear to be bothered by them.

I took him to the GP but felt like the doctor didn't give us his full attention. He was visibly rushed and didn't even look at DS properly before prescribing flucloxacillin which after reading about we decided not to give DS as it seemed hardcore with lots of possible side effects and DS was still tiny.

Does anyone who is familiar with exzema think that's what it is?

Thanks for reading.
