12 Month Old with Rash

My 12 month old son occasionally gets a rash on his legs and arms. We thought it was just a little eczema at first, but now it has spread to his back, neck, and belly. It doesn't bother him at all, but it freaks me out! They are oval shaped red splotches, the worst ones are in his knee pits and elbow pits. Any one know if this could have something to do with teething? It comes and goes, I've changed his bath soap and laundry detergents to "free" so it isn't a fragrance thing. Thanks!
