Facial rash: Small red bumps on face typically represent a rash. Rashes can be caused by many things such a virus, food allergies, contact allergies and more. If it persists for more than several days I recommend dermatology evaluation. Try to pinpoint what may have caused the rash. Topical corticosteroid creams may help

Contact allergy?: Good morning, alyssa uncontrollable itch with a rash suggests that your local immune system is either fighting a fungus or rejecting a contact allergen. Description of the rash as well as location will help to make a diagnosis. Local application of cortisone cream can reduce symptoms due to contact allergen. If it is a fungal rash, antifungal creams help. Please see your doctor to for management.

I'm curious as to what kind of rash has little red bumps is itchy and is on the neck?

Rash: It's difficult to tell w/o an exam and even then, there are many conditions that can present this way. However, if it is just limited to the neck with itchiness, it may be contact dermatitis or folliculitis. Did you recently shave that area? Is there something that may have come into contact with the area recently that could have caused an allergic reaction? Try OTC tx to see if it improves.
