Recurring evening rash in toddlers, please help

My two children (boy 3 yrs 3 mths, girl 4 yrs 8 mths) have been getting rashes every evening for the past five evenings. At first we thought it was their new bubble bath, but we stopped that. Next evening with no bubble bath, the same. Tonight we didn t bath them, because the rash seemed to come every time during or after bath. it s now 22:00 and the boy has just woken up crying, with the rash. It s mostly around the abdomen and lower back area, but sometimes spreads to the legs and neck. Once appeared in the face . The rash are little bumps of varying sizes and shapes. They make the whole area where they are go red. (not only bumps are red). No fever . No other symptoms. They both recovered from a mild cold about a week ago, and still have an occasional cough and runny noses. They re not taking any medication at the moment, and we have not made any changes to their diet .

Thanks for the query. Please verify regarding any change in soap, powder etc. If the symptoms are seen in both the children, it appears to be Dermatogical infection , commonly called Pyoderma. This needs to be confirmed by your doctor who will prescribe proper antibiotics and antiinflammatory medications. Please get your doctor see these children.

Sounds like exema my sons get it some times and the warm water always makes it worse. Cortizone cream helps if so.

If its after jammie time, could it be the fabric of the jammies. Have you changed laundry care products? Is there a certain place they lay down or play after jammie time and before bed? Maybe bed bugs, yes they are real and they bite!
