Thanks for posting your query.
Red bumpy rashes on the body can be due to eczema, dermatitis- allergic, erythema multiforme, dry skin, etc. Most of the rashes are harmless and often resolve by themselves.

Some measures:
1)Apply Calamine lotion and observe for any changes.

2)Avoid using any cosmetics as lotion,creams etc.

3)Avoid overloading the child with clothes as excess heat or cold can also lead to rashes.

4)Apply Aloe vera gel on them.

If the rashes increase in size and number or are associated with any symptoms as itching,discharge or child is irritable,develops fever then consider visiting your Healthcare Provider for evaluation.

I hope this answers your query.
