There is a specific condition known as "sweat dermatitis" or "sweat-induced dermatitis" ... basically the person's sweat has allergy-related immunoglobulins in their sweat, and anything that traps the sweat against the skin also traps the immunoglobulins. The result is dermatitis.
It's often seen on the back, and back of the thighs, of people who drive a lot in hot weather. It shows up as "vest rash" in cops who wear Kevlar vests for long periods, and "glove rash" in lab workers and semiconductor fab workers.
The remedy is to avoid sweating, wear absorbent clothing (glove liners, t-shirts), and rinse the skin frequently.
A removable, washable cover for the car seat would prevent much of this. In AZ, the seat and carseat material gets hot enough to burn exposed skin, so car seat liners are the rule.
