My 1 month old have what looks like a rash on her shoulders and head. Is there anything that I can put on it to make it go away? I have had a doctors appointment for Wednesday, but would rather not take her if I don't have to.

That sounds like heat rash my daughter gets it loads in the summer all round her neck and back. It goes on its own within a few days.

My daughter had some thing like you what discribe and she gave us a cream to put on it twice a day and it went away within 3 days.

I could be a heat rash. I noticed it today when she woke up from one of her naps. It seems to be only on the back of her shoulders and the front top part of her chest and a little bit on the side and back of her head. It almost looks like acne, but it's not. I'm going to take her for sure to the doctor on Wednesday.

I know it's cold but do you think it could be from her getting hot at night/over bundling heat rash. The only 2 rashes I've dealt with any of my 3 girls was eczema/dry skin which is a red thick patch, and heat rash which is tiny and spread out. At that age it's always a doctors visit:)
