What can cause a skin rash?

8 votes
My 10 month old son has recently developed a rash on his lower stomach, side and back.  It's not extreme and doesn't seem to bother him.  We've ruled out food allergies and laundry soap and now I'm stumped.  He is crawling.  Could it be carpet burn?

Could be just a skin irritation (maybe the diaper or soap you are using to bathe him with?)  These irritations, like allegies can creep up on us at any time!

wow, could be anything! from allergens like animal dander, foods (milk proteins, wheat), yeast (diaper rash), or simple atopic dermatitis (aka eczema). Also can be fragrances in laundry detergent. Lots of things can cause a baby rash.
