Red rash: An itchy rash in a two month old could be a variety of causes. It is possible to be a viral rash, an irritation from a perfume in a soap or item of clothing, or allergic cause. An associated red eye is more likely to be an infection of some sort. Is he feeding well? Any fever? Have a visit with a physician to get a thorough exam and diagnosis!

Hard to say: Rashes usually require a direct exam unless it is described in specific detail, which is not available here. Eczema, atopic dermatitis, baby acne, & other issues may be at play. I would have the kid seen as treatment if any requires an appropriate diagnosis.
