Rash?

I just noticed a rash on the back of DS neck and head. I am not sure what it is.On Aug 17 he was vaxed for kindergarten. They said to keep an eye out for a rash that could show up from 2 weeks to a month later. He also can't eat anything with red 40 because of how it affects his behavior. I recently bought a combo body wash/shampoo/conditioner and it has red 40 in it. Well since he will not be eating it I thought it would be okay(and it still may be IDK) It has been a few dasy of using the body wash.

Pics in first reply. May take awhile, uploading from phone.

No. Just the back of his head and neck.

If it's not anywhere else, my guess would be the soap as well. Call the dr in the a.m. to be sure.

Call the ped. I just found out that even if you weren't previously allergic to something, or had a previously smaller reactionlast time, it doesn't meant that's the way you are going to react everytime.

 This morning. I gave him a shower before bed and used different shampoo and body wash.

Look like you found your answer.  The rash looks much better.
