Hello

this rash looks more like miliaria more commonly known as prickly heat. Kindly do not use any dusting powder or talcum powder. u can use any natural oil like coconut oil to prevent the baby’s skin from becoming dry. Ensure there are no other causes which can lead to irritation from contact . All said , it is more prudent to visit the paediatrician in person as dermatological lesions such as this need to be examined to rule out other causes. If u find the lesion persisting or increasing , kindly visit the doctor
