It is very unusual for your baby to have a heat rash like this and especially in such a young baby.It is possible that your baby has a condition called baby acne or another possibility is an eczema rash. It is difficult for me to be sure about your baby's rash without being able to see him. I recommnend that you take your baby to see a doctor so that a proper diagnosis can be made of this rash and the correct treatment can be given.
