    Default Red spotty rash on newborns face

    My 5 week old has come up with this red rash on one side of her face. She also has what looks like a mosquito bite on her neck. Wondering if its just milk pimples or maybe something to be concerned about?

    Looks like what my DD has, which is milk spots according to my midwife and CAFHS lady. It comes and goes.

    Both my kids got that at exactly that age, not sure what the technical word is but I called it baby acne. Very normal
