1 year old w dry skin/rash
So my 1 year old broke out in rash about 2 weeks ago.  All over body, but most severe around neck and chest.  It felt bumpy w alot of redness.  After about 3 days the redness went away, but the bumps remain.  Even still, 2 weeks later, the dry bumps are still there.  And every once in a while, the redness will return briefly on his face/cheeks.  

There has been no fever recently, however...he has had a few times... rash w fever in the past.  

Does this sound like eczema? Or allergy? or something else?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Hello,
From the symptoms it looks like a viral rash, chances of viral infection causing a viral rash the highest. Other possibility of such a rash which is appearing on different body parts is an allergic reaction. To confirm the diagnosis, you need to get an evaluation done from his pediatrician.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
