Mysterious rash... very annoying. It does sound like either a food or contact allergy. I'd just keep track of what he eats/ touches when it happens and see if you find a pattern. Also since he iks BF keep track of what you've eaten in case that is causing it. DS#2 has had rashes since he was a baby on the side of his face and we've never figured it out. We thought it was chocolate for a while but it seems to be worse in the summer when he gets hot and sweaty. I put cortizone cream on if I see him itching it.

Heat rash, maybe? When is his next well baby check? I'd ask the doctor about it, for sure. Poor guy. If it's not swelling, I don't think it would be food allergies, but I'm also not a doctor so that's just my initial thought. How long ago did this start?

The first time was almost a week ago. His next check up isn't til October (1 yr check up) but I did take a picture of it to show her. I know that I haven't eaten anything new and he's had cheese/dairy before, but that doesn't mean that a sensitivity isn't starting up. I'm not real worried about it since he isn't being bothered by it, but I would like to figure it out. I don't think it's heat related since it's not under his neck roll or in any other folds or wrinkles.

Is it anywhere else on his body, like his back or tummy?

Monkey, our older son, had an unexplained rash several times in the same areas.

No, it hasn't appeared anywhere else besides his face. I'm wondering if it isn't a preservative. I need to look at the ingredients for the yogurt and see if it has something in common with the cheese.
