  • I would say heat rash or allergic reaction. Has he ran a fever? Does he act like his throat hurts? If no other symptoms are present, its probably just irritation like heat or an allergin.

  • My 8 month old gets that from time to time I thought it was something serious and it was just a heat rash.

  • Could be a heat rash, an irritation from his clothing, sweat, or drool (if he's at that age). It could be a reaction to a lotion or soap that you're suing. It could be anything.

  • As others have said, it could be heat rash.
    It could be an allergic reaction.
    It could be a flare of ezcema
    it could be a virus.
    It could be bug bites.

    With my DD, who has a few food allergies and environmental allergies, I tend to assume her rashes are hives if they don't accompany a fever. We dose with benadryl and apply some hydrocoritsone to the rash. If it clears, we call the allergist to help figure out what triggered it. If it doens't clear, we check with the Ped.

  • I would guess a heat rash or a reaction to something...detergent, sunscreen, any meds he took. My son got a rash like that when we used a different kind of sunscreen. It cleared up within 24 hours but if you are concerned, take him in!

  • When it comes to little ones, rashes happen. If it doesn't bother him, then ignore it.
