Does this look like heat rash?

Ok, so I have been getting this rash for over a year now, and it is only when I get hot, like when I take a shower, work out, clean, anything like that.  IT itches and is so freaking irritating.  I get it all up and down my arms, my legs, and on my chest.  I have been to a dermatologist and all they did was gave me some cream, that did nothing.  What does this look like to you? 

THANKS!!

I am always changing soap and shampoo, LOL.  I like to try new stuff, but it still does it, after every shower.

Yeah, I just took these after I got out of the shower, lol.  I have to take hot showers, but it also does this anytime I get hot, that is why I thought it could be heat rash, but it does not really look like it to me.
