Rashes, spots on upper leg. Prescribed cream. What can stop outbreak?

my grandson has a type of rash that comes and goes every 24 hours or so. Yesterday he had spots in various places on his body that looked like bug bites and a larger spot on his upper leg. Today that larger spot was gone and he had a similar one on the other leg and spots in other spots. The pediatrician prescribed a creme but it didn't stop the outbreak. What do you make of it?
