Brief Answer:
May be viral exanthema

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have seen the image. Fever with appearance of this kind of Papular rashes can be due to viral infection.
Here I would suggest you to consult a pediatrician for clinical evaluation. Giving paracetamol for fever and calamine lotion(to soothen the rashes) if there is associated itching will help.
I would like to observe the baby for progression or character of rashes.If rashes progresses further and there is formation of fluid filled lesions,it may be due to varicella infection (chicken pox).
I won't get overly worried if rashes won't progress as this may be due to some other viral illness which usually improves with conservative treatment.


I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more query.
Regards
