Major skin issues

Hey everyone, my son has developed what seems to be a chronic rash/break out/dryness in his face and neck. He woke up in major pain today. Dermatologist can’t seem to figure it out and said it’s dermatitis. But it keeps coming back. Anyone else deal with this? Could it be a side effect of Inflectra?

I have had skin issues since being on Remicade - it is possible. Does the rash look like psoriasis? Is it patchy or solid...could possibly be a pseudo-psoriasis. I'd look into a second opinion and also make sure his GI is aware of the skin issue.
