Child having few small pin prick red spots on legs and arms. Some scabs due to scratching. Is it heat or viral rash?

Hi, my 2 year old came up with small pin prick red spots on his legs on Monday, he has quite a few on his legs and now a couple of arms too - mainly behind knees, inside elbows. They have little scabs on them although he may have been scratching them to cause this. He is overwise healthy in himself from what we can tell. He hasn t been complaining that they itch at all. We have presumed this is viral or heat rash - what do you think? Thanks

THIS MAY BE DUE TO ACIDIC NATURE OF SWEAT
SO THESE SPOTS ARE ONLY IN AREA WHERE THERE IS SWEATING
JUST KEEP THE AREAS DRY ,LOT OF WATER
CLEAN THE SWAT OFF AN ON
APPLY ANNTIFUNGAL CREAM MORNING AND EVENING OVER EFFECTED PARTS
YOU CAN ALSO USE CANDD B POWDEER IN BETWWEN AFTER DRYING THE AREA WITH TISSUE OR CLEAN SOFT CLOTH
HE WILL BE OK
