DS has a speckly rash (red dots) all over his chest, tummy and back, which wasn't there this morning.

He seems fine other than a sniffly nose, although he is a bit warm (but not a temperature)

Not changed washing powder etc. Any ideas?

This one has less info but explains that it can happen even without the hot weather factor.

hmm, perhaps it is prickly heat

shall keep an eye on him. it's more reassuring than me thinking 'oh my god, he hasn't had his MMR yet!' Can you tell he's my first?

Sometimes they just have 'a rash', non-specific, which just comes and then goes. We had quite a lot of that in the first year or so with ds1.
