2 year old with rash on tummy

DS has been under the weather for a couple of days. Yesterday he woke up with his tummy covered in flat reddish spots. I have done the glass test and I am happy that it's not meningitis, but what is it?
I had pityraosis rosea a few years ago and it reminds me very much of that. However according to google it is unlikely to be that in someone so young.
I don't think it is itchy but he is very clingy and lethargic. I am hoping it will go away with rest. Any advice?

I would guess it's probably a non-specific viral rash if there are no other worrying symptoms but the lethargy as well would make me want to take advice from the GP.
