What is causing this rash!? Remedies?

About 5 days ago, my one month old starting getting tiny little red bumps on her face and neck. And it just keeps getting worse, there's groups of the bumps with red splotches and there are some now on her scalp, back and chest. Some areas feel dry too, like on her chin. 

I thought maybe baby acne but I'm not sure if that goes beyond the face. Maybe eczema? But my ds had eczema and it looked different. I also cut dairy out of my diet in case it was an allergic reaction to that. No improvement though, only got worse. It can't be an allergic reaction to perfumes or detergant or anything like that because we use all natural stuff in our home. I make my own stuff with all natural, organic soaps and essential oils. 

Does anyone know what it could be or have any good suggestions on all natural remedies that might clear it up?

Try expressing some milk and putting it on the spots. Do that a few times a day for a couple of days and see if that helps. If that doesn't work, try coconut oil (the organic kind). It is good for everything.

Could really be anything. I would make a doctor appointment.

I wanted to hold off on running to the doctor right away before her next check up because she's not sick. No fever and whatever the rash is, it doesn't seem to be bothering her at all. I don't think it's eczema now though. There's no scaling dry patches.

One of my girls got a rash under her neck from yeast in her drool when she was a baby. Any chance that could be it?

Rub Vicks on the area. I'm telling you it works wonders for all kinds of skin problems.

When we lived in fl, my niece as a baby got a nasty rash infection under her neck. We tried everything the dr recommended, we eventually tried vicks cleared it right up. Again a year later she broke out from some bibs she was wearing (found out after she wore it again) and rubbed vicks on it and cleared it up quick.

Works on chapped lips to. My mom pulled a muscle or a tendend on her ankle and she tried vicks and made it feel better and not swell up as bad.

Would that spread all over the face? It's the worst around her cheeks, behind her ears and back of the neck. Because we both had thrush not too long ago.

If she uses a pacifer it could from the spit getting around it. Especially if she is a heavy drooler.
