What's on his face?

My son has a rash looking thing on his cheeks. It's red raised dots, but it's just on his cheeks. He's three weeks old. What could it be?

  • It's hard to tell without seeing it, have you called his dr about it?

  • It could be Fifth Disease or it could simply be baby acne. I would call the pediatrician and make an appointment.

  • Baby acne is actually pretty common and first occurs usually when they are 3-4 weeks old. You should ask the pediatrician at his next visit. Congrats too on the new little one!
