Rash all over the body in a child, redness, in cluster at some place on the body, hydrocortizone cream, a cream for scabies, rash still persist

My child has a rash that appeared from nowhere. He is 2 years old. We have not changed any household items nor has he been exposed to new foods. He has not ran a fever and has acted normally. The rash is all over his body and looks red in some places and normal skin color in others. The rash is raised and does not bother him. The rash is in clusters in some places while in others it is individual bumps. We have taken him to the doctor and has been treated with hydrocortizone cream and a cream for scabies and the rash still persist. He has had the rash for about 4 weeks. What could this be?
