In brief: Very common

Newborns are frequently born with a fine, white/pearly rash to their face, primarily on the cheeks, nose and chin.
This is known as "milia" or sometimes known as "newborn acne." milia is found on virtually all newborns and is nothing to worry about.

In brief: Several reasons

Newborns can have facial rashes for several reasons.
Milia consists of small white dots, usually on the nose. Newborn acne somewhat resemble that in teenagers, usually on the cheeks. Erythema toxicum sounds scary, but is a common reddish rash that occurs anywhere on the body, starting a day or 2 after birth. All of them are common and resolve on their own. See your doctor if concerned.
