A baby's skin is soft -- but it's not always unblemished! Most of the bumps and red spots aren't anything to be worried about and will go away. White bumps on the nose, chin, or cheeks are very common. So is baby acne. Both usually clear up on their own. And red spots on your baby's belly that look like bites are also pretty common and go away in a week or two.
A red, pimply rash in neck folds or behind the ears -- places where skin is moist -- could be prickly heat. It even has a coarse, sandpaper feel. Wash the skin gently with plain cool water and pat -- don’t rub -- dry.
If you are worried about any rash or if your child is sick or has a fever, call your pediatrician. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!
