Child having rash on abdomen, flank area, buttocks, thighs. No scales, itching. What could it be?

My 6 year old daughter has a red rash on her abdomen, flank area, buttocks and thighs. It is simply red, with no postules and is not scaly. She says it does not itch and does not burn . I noticed it about a week ago before she went to bed and when I checked her the next morning it was not as red. Tonight she called me into the bathroom and she was about to get in the shower to show me again.

Thanks for the query,

Asymptomatic rash is quiet common in children,

It is usually viral in nature.

However the rash of your daughter is persisting and typical.

Another possibility is allergy to clothes.

A photograph would have helped in diagnosis.

Please meet a dermatologist for final diagnosis and treatment
