My son is 4 weeks old and a few days ago I saw these tiny little bumps emerging around his eyes, eyelids, forehead and a few on his chin. They don't look like pimples....it almost looks like a heat rash? Anyone experience this w/their newborn? If so, what did u do? ONI haven't been using lotion on his face or soap, just warm water w/a washcloth. Should I call his pediatrician?

It sounds exactly like baby acne. They don't look like pimples we get.

Some times babies get milk spots around there face. It is not known why. Ask the health visitor about them as they can not be treated around his eye area.
