Rash on face

My daughter has a spotty rash on her cheeks and it's spread to her eyelids. It's not bothering her and she's normal otherwise.

Rang 111 and they said it's milk spots and said go to a pharmacy

Went to the pharmacy and they said it's an allergy but check with a GP

went to the GP today and he said it's eczema and prescribed Aveeno cream.

The pharmacy I went to collect the prescription didn't know what it was, disagreed on eczema and said I should give her some water (she's 6 weeks)

I'm at a loss of what to do - more than anything it just looks terrible and worried it will spread more.

Sound familiar to anyone here?

So many different views from professionals it's hard to know what to do!

It's normal for babies of that age to get a bit spotty (they also seem to lose their hair starting from now too so look awful!)
If she is otherwuse well I wouldn't worry and just wash with water and then use sudocream/diprobase on it. It should hopefully get better soon.
