This http://www.babycenter.com/symptom-guide?sgStage=baby?sgStage=baby link will help you see what it COULD be. Based on your description, it could be Fifths, Eczema, Impetigo, Roseola, or many other things. You need to see a doctor to determine exactly what it is and the treatment needed. Maybe just lotion, maybe an antibiotic. Maybe he is contagious and you need to take precautions that it doesn't spread. In this case, you will need to see the dr. asap. The link is easy to use. Choose child's age, then one or more symptoms, then it will tell you some possibilities and even show photos. This may help you more in the future, but on this rash, go to the clinic care asap. I wouldn't take any chances. Also, no benadryl until you know what it is. Good luck!

Without having any pictures, it sounds like hives or infant eczema. He could be allergic to something. Call a doctor to have him checked out and get proper baby medication. You should be able to use a diluted Benadryl cream on him in the meantime. You can mix the Benadryl cream with diaper rash cream or regular unscented baby lotion in equal parts (50% each). A cool wet towel over it should also help relieve some itchiness.
