Brief Answer:
Give colicaid drops

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns but don't worry. You may give colicaid drops for relief. If the baby doesn't show any signs of improvement after colicaid drops and proper burping, then visit a pediatrician for proper clinical examination and definitive treatment.

Hopefully it will be of help. I would be happy to help you in any further questions.

Brief Answer:
Most likely allergic rash

Detailed Answer:

The most likely reason for such rashes in babies especially after changing brands of skin products is newborn allergy to newer brand. Do not worry.
The only thing required at present is wait and watch. Hopefully it will subside in next 24 hours.
Also, avoid baby magic and use Johnson's or sebamed washes.
Take care
