Full body rash

My 23 mo has a rash covering her entire body. It is not so prevalent on her face and neck as on the rest of her. In the diaper area it also affects her butt but not really her front. They look like little zits and are not red or inflamed looking. She has no other symptoms. The rash really doesn’t even seem to bother her. What the heck could it be though?

  • has she recently had shots? when my baby had her 12 month old chicken pox shot, a few days later she was covered in a similar rash to what you are describing.

  • It could be heat pumps but just to be safe i would take her to the doc and let him figure it out.

  • Yes I agree it could be a symptom of being recently vaccinated.

  • I'd say heat rash. Take her to the Dr if they don't clear in a few days.
