Rash on my toddlers arms

my 18 month old looks like he has a rash but its only on his arms. like the backs of his upper arms, it looks like just dry skin. but hes had what i believe is the flu this week. he hasn't had a fever the past day or two though.
could it be a rash even if it isnt on his chest/back/stomach
i think im going to take him to the doctor in the morning because of his cough so I'm sure they can look at it, I'm just curiuos if I should put something on it.
if its a rash would it be bad to put lotion on it? non scented st. ivs...

  • I would just mention it to the Doc. It sounds like it can wait until then.
