This is a very common rash in children at this time of the year. Make sure that your baby son only wears cotton clothing and do not cover him too warmly at night. His bedroom must be well ventilated and kept as cool as possible.It is usually not necessary to apply any creams or ointments to the rash but if he is itchy then apply a small amount of baby aqueous cream as necessary.
