What causes rashes on the stomach and buttocks of a toddler?

My 2 year old grandson has just broken out with large red welts on his belly, bum, groin and arm pits. His mom says he also has been breathing funny and developed a dry cough. I thought it sounds like an allergic reaction but to my knowledge, he s not had any unusual food. Thoughts?
