He is not in pain and has his two bottom teeth they havent come through fully but have come out of the gum. I only breastfeed and give my son solids.

Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

Be rest assured that the red spots are not due to the warm water. It appears that your son may be developing some viral rash which should subside in the next day or two. Viral rash may come with or without fever. Continue feeding him as you usually do.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

This rash is looking like a transient rash, which are common in infants due to their delicate skin.
Just observe for some time.

Nothing to worry as there are no other alarming symptoms.

You can apply a moisturizer or a calamine containing lotion externally over rash for soothing effect.
If the rash is increasing, or persisting, or associated with any other symptoms take an appointment to consult your Pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query.
