Just being aveno doesn't make it great.

*I* would stop using whatever soap you're using, go to a - not just mild- but FRAGRANCE FREE soap, and fragrance free lotion.

Along with the ff lotion I'd drop some cortizone in my hand too and rub it all over. Just what I would do though. You can always ask her ped.  :)

She's still little and getting used to the outside world and all it's chemicals!

For spots that big, I suspect more than a contact rash. I think I would ask her doctor.

Describe the rashes. Are they dry, peeling, scaly, red, etc? An 8 month old doesn't need a bath everyday, it can dry out the skin further and irritate any kind of rash. I would switch the soap to something very mild, Dr. Bronner's unscented (you can get it at Target, it's the light blue label) and also drop the Aveeno, it still has all sorts of chemicals in it. Try using coconut oil. Also, get her to a Dr to get a diagnosis. My husband has eczema and can't use anything with any kind of fragrance or harsh chemicals so this is what we use at home.

Cetafil baths. Can be used without water even.

I would get her into her peditrician.  It could be a viral rash, or ecxima (sp)  too early to spell correctly.  But either way, it's not smart to treat it unless you know what you are dealing with, could also be yeast as well

 Sounds like eczema. Try coconut oil. It works wonders on dermatological problems.

My oldest daughter has eczema and she gets rashes like that all the time.  I use udder butter (its in a cow print container)  I get it at walmart.  It helps her more than anything.  I'd have your doc check her out too.  And giving her a bath everyday can irritate it.  Cortizone cream helps but it doesn't clear the rash up for my daughter. the udder butter cream clears my daughters up.
