Seeking Advice on Infant's Rash

My 9 month old son developed a rash about a month ago around his neck and it has spread to his torso and diaper area. His pediatrician prescribed hydrocortisone cream, which helps but returns as soon as I stop using it. The rash consists of flesh colored bumps and some red bumps and itches like crazy. I'm concerned that about using hydrocortisone on such a large surface area and for such a long time. I have no idea what it could be since I haven't changed detergents, shampoos, cleansers, etc. but it is localized only where he's covered....
