My 6 year old son started getting this rash around his left eye, it is growing rapidly?

My 6 year old son started getting this rash around his left eye. We took him to his pediatrician and advised us to use elidel cream. After 2 weeks, it was not showing any signs of going away. Last week my wife took him back in. This time she wanted us to try an antifungal cream. We started using that. My wife just sent me a pic and it has grown rapidly! Any suggestions on what this could be?

hi
this seems to be a rash due to a viral infection. it doesnt seem to be superficial enough to be cured only by applying local cream. A general doctor wont be able to help. You need to consult a dermatologist and start him on oral medicines as well depending on the diagnosis.
thanks

HI
THIS DOESNT SEEM TO BE A FUNGAL INFECTION
THIS RASH SEEMS TO BE DUE TO SOME HEMATOLOGICAL DERANGEMENTS IN HIS BODY. HIS BLOOD NEEDS TO BE THOROUGHLY CHECKED FOR ANY VARIATIONS IN LEVELS.
CONSULT A HEMATOLOGIST

Hi..
It is not a superficial problem,he must be seen by a dermatologist ,, a pediatrician is not aware enough of treating something like this…
