Babies get lots of rashes. There skin is much more sensitive than ours because it hasn't been exposed to as much. It could be a simple heat rash. It could be related to teething if she is drooling a lot. It could be baby acne. From what I understand, most infant rashes are nothing to be concerned about as long as they ar not showing any other symptoms of illness like fever, unusual eating habits, excessive crankiness or tiredness, etc. If you are really worried it never hurts to check with a doctor. I often Google the rashes just to put my mind at ease.
