In brief: Heat or viral

Small red bums could be heat rash.
Might be a virus or if he has been exposed to a new soap, detergent, or food might be a slight reaction. Rashes are best diagnosed when seen. If it persists or worsens see your pediatrician.

In brief: Rash

A rash can have many causes: 1) recent environmental exposure (usually itchy though) 2) recent viral infection (like a cold or diarrhea) may then also have associated non-itchy bumpy rash 3) medications can cause rashes.

In brief: See a doc

Could be any number of things.
Allergy, infection, rash due to foods, medications etc. I do not think it is necessarily related to spina bifida. You should take him in to see his pediatrician.
