    Hello Adette


    How is your rash now?


    There are so many causes for rashes...one could write a book.  I did just write a post about what to do if you have an unexplained rash that you may want to read.


    It could be some sort of allergic reaction...you mentioned that you changed washing detergents.  I am wondering if that could be a potential cause.  Is there any possibility that this is a heat rash?  Do you have any food allergies that you know of?  Have you taken any new medications?


    It really is a process of elimination that a doctor could help you with. 


    What have you tried to treat your rash with?  Anything?  Does calamine lotion or cortisone cream help at all?


    I would recommend seeing your doctor if this rash does not go away. 


    Let us know what happens and thank you for your question.
