In brief: May be hives
Some people get a physical hive caused by heat.
Cool the area for quick resolution. If necessary you can pretreat with non sedating antihistamine such as Claritin (loratadine) orzyrtec.

In brief: No
It might be heat rash if they appear pale it is because fungal infection prevents tanning of skin - treat with combination of otc Hydrocortisone and antifungal cream.
