How old is he? If he is old enough you can try Benadryl. It will clear the rash in to time. My daughter recently had a rash from an allergic reaction, but even before her doctor found out it was an allergic reaction, he thought it was a viral infection and he said I could give her benadryl. The rash was gone within 4 hours. Also, I gave her baths with Aveeno baby wash, and then put Calamine lotion on after and that really helped with the itch

She just said it's a viral infection and no she didn't give him anything for it. I'm sure if I want to take him to another doc his doc has been mine since I was 14 but I'm just worried since it's not getting better I was just wondering if there was any kind of home remedy I do do for him.

Did they give something to treat it?Are they sure its not a rash from something he is allergic to?I would take him back to the doctor,or get a second opinion from another doctor.Good luck
