Any new food is given to kid? Any change in bathing soap? Any new clothes or new bedsheets used? It is looking like allergic rash as there are no other associated problems. You can apply a calamine containing lotion to skin over the rash and itching is there you can give oral antihistamine drug so consult your Pediatrician for the diagnosis of rash and specific traement.
