  • Could be heat rash, look it up on the computer.
    Air out the baby bottom, back, and see if that helps.

    Keep an eye on the fever. To be safe call your peditrician.

  • Could just be from a fever or she could have a viral infection. DD had one not very long ago, and they can't do anything about it. Usually viral rash comes and goes with heat, so when she is warmer the rash is more visible, and less when she cools.

  • Whenever my daughter had unexplained rashes, my doctor told me it was viral. It has to run its course and it will clear up.
