Its probably more of the same type of rash he had when he was newborn, this is usually common from nweborn up until end of 3 months in male babies especially. The medical terminology sounds scary, but its called erythema toxicum. There is nothing to do except cleanse the face gently with baby soap and a washcloth once or twice daily. Too much rubbing or picking will aggrevate. It usually clears up quickly in a couple of days. Hope this helps!

Yes that is something too! Lol I compared it to hoof and mouth when my first sone got it 19 years ago , had never heard of it. Now I work at a preschool head start and we just had an outbreak.Yes extremely contagious and definatley would need to see doctor. Good luck
