Can't see it well enough.

The two commonest rashes in kids, when they otherwise seem quite well, are heat rash and post-viral urticaria.

Heat rash tends to be small, red and pimply. Can appear anywhere but more prominent in the 'creases'.

PVU is like nettle rash. Small spots that become raised and often blend together to form larger blistery looking areas. They aren't real blisters and are not fluid filled.
