Child has rash on chin, no itching. Related to dog scratch?

My 8 year old son has a rash on his chin , it is not circular, or bumpy and it is also not itchy. It actually doesn t bother him at all. I noticed it last night and we washed it with a mild soap. It hasn t gotten any worse, but it also hasn t gotten any better. He has no food allergies . He doesn t drool.. The only thing that has happened within the last few days is that, he was playing with our dog, and the dogs nail, scratched him in the eye. That is already healing and it was very minor of a scratch, so we didn t take him to the doctor. I m sure the two aren t related, but I tried thinking of anything we have done differently this week, and that is all we have come up with. We have been using the same detergents, bath soaps, lotions, and shampoos. Thanks for your help. CW

good morning, if the condtion is not bothering the child theres nothing to be worried about, just try finding similar rashes elsewhere in other regions of the body, if its spreadingly rapidly, he ll need a doctor to examine him, currently u can use some gentle soap to clean his face , may be alovera based soaps. thank you.
