you have not described the type of rash, if it is itchy.
any other manifestation he has like fever etc

have you recently introduced any new food , food allergy could be one reason, you giving same food again again would have increased the rash. other possibility is allergy to any drug if he is taking. allergy to a garment, it could be a manifestation of atopic dermatitis. all these are few possibilities.
if you could have described the rash we can reach to some conclusion
try to rule out any of following

take care
