Rashes on the body

My son is 1.5 years, few days back he had cold and congestion. Along with that he had some rashes on the body with no fever and itching. He had same problem few months back as well. Last time doctor prescribed us a skin lotion, don't remember the exact name. But I guess it was calamine. Shall we use same lotion now also?
