In brief: Needs to be seen

The rash you described could be atopic dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis.
Infant has to be seen by primary care doctor.

In brief: I wouldn't

Babies often get a transient "baby acne" that is not present at birth (bathed in the waters of the womb) but comes out at a few weeks & lasts a couple months.
It is thought to result from maternal hormone effect which gradually declines as the baby ages.It will generally disappear without specific treatment.Talk with your doc @ the 2 mo visit.
