I trust you ladies pretty well, so anyone have any ideas what this is? OT

My son woke up this morning with a small rash on the bottom of his tummy. Then an hour later I went to change him again and get him dressed for the day, and it's spread all over his tummy, chest, and back. It doesn't seem to bother him, and he's not really overly fussy. I'd take a picture but you can't see it because it's so small. It looks like tiny little red pin pricks all over him. My daughter and I have eczema, and that's what I thought it was at first. But I've never seen eczema spread so quickly. We haven't changed laundry soaps or bath soaps (though he normally just gets a water bath since he's only 3 months), and the only moisterizer I put on him is coconut oil. I'm waiting for the nurse to call me back, but I thought I'd ask you ladies:)

Sounds like a viral rash. Does he have a fever?

Nope, so fever, no congestion (other than the allergies the rest of us have). Nothing else out of the ordinary. It's so odd. Just the rash and that's it.

My first thought is chicken pox. Was he vaccinated recently? About three percent of kids who get the vaccine will develop the disease.

It doesn't look like chicken pox. It's too tiny to be that, and not blistery looking either. He hasn't even gotten his 4 month shots yet, so, no he hasn't gotten that vax yet.

Did he have a fever that he got over recently? My daughter had Roseola and it looked like what you're describing. The spots show up after a fever
