I tried taking better pics but with a very active toddler and a phone camera, this is all I got.

He has a rash all over his neck, arms, back and chest. They are small red bumps that don't seem to bother him. It has been going on in various locations and intensities for weeks now. I thought it could possibly be a food reaction, a heat rash, or a mild reaction to Amoxicillin (sp?) for his ear infection. Is it worth taking him to the Dr since there are no other symptoms?

Is there anything I can do about it??

Update : Last night he slept in his diaper with the A/C on and the ceiling fan. He woke up with the rash spreading further down his arms and now his legs. Still no other symptoms yet.

2nd update: I took him to see my friend who is a RN. She said to stop with the antibiotic and start giving him benadryl. We are going to the pediatrician in the morning. Thanks everyone for your input and help :)

Final Update : Took him to the pediatrician this morning. Definitely a reaction to the Amoxicillin!

Thanks everyone for your insight and encouragement :)

Looks like heat rash to me.  I might cal the nurses line, just to make sure it doesn't sound like something different to them.

Call the your pedriatrician's office and see what they say and go from there.

Looks like heat rash honestly but if you aren't 100% sure, you can always call his pedi.
