  • Could be a variety of things.
    Could be if he fell down or was rolling around on the grass. That sounds likely with the location of the rash.
    Could be the laundry detergent, or dryer sheets. Try tide sensitive, or if you use one with a scent try one non-scented.
    It could be his body wash/soap. If that is scented or if it is too strong. Also if you use lotion on him use the johnson n johnson- non scented.
