Skin eruptions/bumps: Thank you for your question. Tiny bumps on the head & neck in a newborn may be caused by many things (including acne). There are forms of inflammatory conditions of the skin that could cause a rash as well as responses to external & internal sources or otherwise. Having an examination and evaluation performed by a qualified medical practitioner would be helpful in accurate diagnosis & treatment
