Rashes are often a mystery and very hard to determine the cause. The best thing to do is treat the rash and watch your baby for any other symptoms. To soothe the rash try putting coconut oil on it. You can also try putting your baby in an oatmeal bath to soothe the itching and discomfort. If your baby develops any swelling or difficulty breathing call your doctor. Generally a viral rash starts after the baby recovers from a virus.
