In brief: MD visit

The rash may be due to a number of conditions, including infections, contact dermatitis or allergic dermatitis.
Since you both have a rash, this raises the possibility of an infection that has been transferred to the baby. If you are applying topical lotions or perfumed products this may lead to a contact dermatitis. Your physician will be able to determine the treatment for the underlying cause.
