Doublebase skin rash/eczema - HV?

My baby has eczema or heat rash the professionals can't seen to decide! I was prescribed double base which seems to do well with the flare-ups. However HV this morning said I shouldn't be using anything as this maybe lightening my babies face? His face is lighter than his body? But surely that is bull as his scalp is the same colour as his face?

I get so confused and upset about these things and conflicting advice.

PS: Isn't it only steriods which would lightened face/skin? I'm controlling flare-ups with doublebase and diprobase, avoiding steriods at the moment.
