Child. Red, pimply rash on arms and legs. No fever. Reason?

My 15 month old has a red pimply looking rash that started with 3 bumps on her arm 2 days ago and has spread to both arms and is now appearing on her legs. The initial spots do appear to be improving somewhat, but are still there. The rash doesn't seem to bother her, is not hot to the touch, and she has not had a fever. What is causing this? Is there anything I can do to make the rash go away? Is this something I should have her seen for?

Thanks for placing your query here.
I can appreciate your concerns.
In an otherwise well child non itchy rashes appears to be a resuly of viral infection.
As there is no pain,burning or itching you can safely wait for few days till they start resoluting.
There is no need to apply anything.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish her a good health.
