In brief: Rash

From your descriptions it seems like either a contact or allergic dermatitis.
But you can not diagnose rashes without looking at it.Since the rash is rather extensive you need to take him to his pediatrician or family doctor or dematologist.

In brief: Many possibilities

Pediatric rashes can be from many possible causes, including viral infections, bacterial infections, allergic reactions, and many others.
Unfortunately, dermatology is a specialty that relies heavily on actually seeing and feeling the rash. Thus, providing you with a diagnosis based on a written description is impossible. Best to see your pediatrician or dermatologist to provide you a diagnosis.
