Hi, This could be eczema, sweat dermatitis, allergic reactions or due to friction or tight , uncomfortable clothing. You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene. Wear lose comfortable clothes. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms. It would be advisable to consult a skin specialist for the symptoms and a proper clinical examination. Regards.

It can be due to allergies or viral infection which cause blisters. He may need antiviral drugs.

Itchy, small, tiny red bumps on child's tummy can be due to viral rashes, allergies, heat rash, prickly heat or dermatitis to the texture of clothes.
