Having difficulty making out the picture but it sounds exactly like what's been happening on my LOs skin the last two or three weeks. I had put it down to heat/sweat rash, because the weather is so sticky. Well, it is here in Cambs.

yeah maybe but its more like acne spots if you see what i mean and its not hot here at all the last week ,suffolk ?
and the ones on his body are spaced far apart not togther like heat rash
