any idea what could be causing my 4mo face to break out in rashes/bumps?

it's been coming and going for a few days...it'll clear up a lot, and then suddenly there's red rashes on her face.

  • I don't know what it looks like but my son had a rash on his face and chest when he was that age...It was from milk...He was a spitter and he would soak his bibs and shirts and then his skin would break out, the doctor gave him hydrocortisone cream and it cleared right up.

  • That happened to my daughter. Turned out it was a reaction to my mom's perfume!

  • Eczema- dry sensitive skin. Some people are more pron then others myself and oldest daughter have it. It gets really red and can even get a little scaly. It turns really red for us because of fair skin. But to be safe you may want to see a doc.

  • It can be normal 'baby acne' that isn't treated. Usually babies get it when they are younger but they can get it when they are a few months old. Eczema usually wouldn't be described as bumps.

  • It looks like baby acne to me. Its harmless and will go away by itself...just dont pick at it!
