My 5 mth old dd started out with a rash in her nappy area (in the folds), it then spread to all over her nappy area and consisted of raised pimples that oozed. The rash then spread (about 2 days later) to all over her body.

I thought heat rash but went to doc to be sure. He thought a bad case of nappy rash and a separate allergic rash all over body due to the introduction of solids. He gave me steroid cream for nappy rash with an anti-fungal (just in case) and told me to stop with the solids.
She hasn't got a temp but now has a cough and is sneezing. She is generally ok but is feeding non-stop. Has anyone any experience of this type of thing? The rash is a little better and looks a lot like a heat rash.
