Body rash, child also has similar rash. Itching. What could this be?

I have a rash that first started on my arms around my wrists and has now spread to my chest , neck , and stomach . At first I thought it was an allergic reaction or a heat rash but it s lasted for about 2 weeks now and my 5 months old now has a similar rash as well that started at her diaper area and I also at first thought that this was a heat rash but now it s spread on her as well up her chest and neck. It is very itchy for both of us! What could this be and how can I get this gone?

Thanks for the query,

you might be suffering from scabies.

Your description matches with this.

Also It is quiet common infection an child hood.

It will be better to consider an application of permethrin.

Also take an anti histamine tablet.

This will control the itch.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

And get the medication prescribed.
