Not an emergency: Doesn't sound like an emergency to me. Cool compresses might help.

Baby acne tends to occur right around this age and looks like red bumps that get redder and stand out more when baby is upset or just after a bath. This goes away on its own in a few weeks.

Fabric or irritant: She is having something that is irritating and inflaming her skin. Could be fabrics and detergent, or grass and pollen if she's been outside. Cool compresses, vaseline, and baking soda/ aveeno baths are very soothing. Hydrocortisone cream can help with the itching also. If it doesn't resolve discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more
