Welcome to healthcare magic.
The rash in your case might very well be prickly heat (miliaria). It is summer now and quite hot. Whatever you are using seems to be ideal. Additionally you can have cold water compresses which will sooth. As it is not itchy or painful there is nothing to worry. Avoid as much as possible sun and heat and try staying indoors.
Nothing to panic.
Take care.
