heat rash from a fever?

Three days ago my 4 year old had a fever and a sore throat. Yesterday I noticed a bright red rash on her bottom and between her legs (the fever and sore throat were gone by this time). At first it didn't seem to bother her, but now it is peeling and itches. Someone told me it could be a heat rash from the fever. Is this possible? If not, what could it be and how should I treat it? So far I've treated it like diaper rash--using Desitin and corn starch but it doesn't seem to be helping. Any suggestions?
