  • Im am not a dr but it sounds like a contact allergy, he might have something that is irritating him, either clothes or something he ate.

    try washing his clothes is a milder detergent or switching cleaners from the toxic brnads, that is what I did for my daughter who had a similar experience and it worked great..

  • It could be heat rash , or an irritation from his diapers wipes or cloths , it could even be from the laundry det , The real answer lies in the Question , What have you done differently or changed B4 the rash appeared , Of course the best answer is consult his doctor , but in the past our doc would just ask me what Ive done differently and try to figure a cause , but he said if it isnt hurting him then just give it time and care

  • My son had the same thing. I switched from Pampers to Huggies and he got a pretty widespread rash on his low back-it was the dye in the huggie. Clothing dye can cause it to per his Dr.
    She gave him a cream that knoked it out once we switched back to Pampers.
