5 month old has rash. Started on back of head and has now

Customer Question

5 month old has rash. Started on back of head and has now moved to full face. It is itchy and bothers him. Gets redder throughout day and sometimes only small dots, barely any redness. We think maybe heat rash? What can I do to help heal this? We are on day 5. I can attach a pic.

I notice small bumps appearing on his stomach now. I have given him cool baths with camomile and lavender in them and this seems to calm the rash for an hour of so. I am mostly worried because it seems to be spreading rather than going away.
