    A: Why the baby face so red?
    B: It's because he like to suck his hand and the saliva from his mouth makes his face rashes.

    "makes his face rashes." How to say the rashes on face is because by the saliva?

    'Causes rashes on his face.'

    Re: The saliva from his mouth makes his face rashes.

    We don't use "rash" as a verb so you can't say "makes his face rash". I would say "The saliva gives him a rash on his face". I don't think there's any need to say "the saliva from his mouth" - saliva doesn't come from anywhere else and you have said that the baby "sucks his hand" so the mouth connection has already been made.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I saw people write 'caused by' or 'because of' but not 'because by'.

    Quite right, MatthewWai. I missed that.

    It is caused by the saliva.
    It is because of the saliva.

    I would be very surprised if the rash on the left resulted from the behavior on the right.

    Yes, those are definitely two different babies pictured.

    A: Why the baby face so red?
    This should say "Why is the baby's face so red?"

    (And the answer is: atopic dermatitis, or infant eczema.)

    Or the result of an allergy to something.
