Rash: rashes are difficult to assess without seeing what the rash looks and feels like - could be a reaction to skin products used or atopic eczema it is better to have your paediatrician check it out and prescribe the appropriate treatment in the mean time if the baby does not have a fever it is unlikely due to an infection - change bath products to hypo allergenic frangrance free products
