This does not seem to be the kind of rash I would expect with a nappy rash. Your baby may have been bitten by a mosquito or by a flea. Often in babies and young children a single insect bite can lead to several other pimples starting up on the abdomen and thighs as you describe here.Apply a little calamine lotion and see if the rash clears up.
