Many possibilities.: Possibilities include allergic response to a soap, fabric softener, or clothing; seborrheic dermatitis (usually involves the scalp too); irritant reaction from saliva, especially if he sleeps on his tummy (not recommended) and rubs drool around his face; eczema; a viral rash; and many others. With a baby this young, don't experiment with adult creams; let a dermatologist have a look.

May not be heat rash: You should have the baby examined by a pediatrician. This may not be heat rash but eczema or impetigo.
