What is happening to my toddlers skin? PICS

For about four days, my daughters butt cheeks have broken out with pimples. Little pimples with little white heads. They didn't bother her, and she didn't seem to mind them. I thought heat rash or she was sweating excessively in her diaper. Maybe even I was leaving the wet dipes on too long. Nbd. I started changing her more frequently, and letting her hiney air out. 

Yesterday, I noticed the pimples were on her upper legs, near the crease of her leg and onto her torso - under her belly button. A few seemed irritated. Red rings around them. I called the doctor who said it might be a mild staph infection, and to put an OTC antibacterial on them and to go to urgent care if they get worse or spread. 

I don't think it's gotten worse. The redness of the irritated pimples doesn't seem like it's spreading. There's no pitting or holes in the center of any of the pimples. They all have little whiteheads. But around 8pm I noticed she's getting them on her cheek on her face. A few verrryyyy tiny ones and one that's a little irritated. 

thoughts? Should I be worried now? Or do I need to chill out and continue with the antibacterial? 


 The dark spot is where she scratched a little and I guess her nail snagged the pimple. 



The photos are terrible. She was mad I was getting too close to her booboos and the lighting was dim, so they were the best I could get.

My son used to get pimple like things on his butt and legs. We would have to pop them because they would get large and painful. They went away after he was potty trained

If it's on her face I would go in.

I'd actually take her to the doctor. Looks like maybe hand, foot and mouth.

that reminds me of hand foot mouth, but the way it started on her bum is weird.
