Red spots around baby's eyes?

Hiya, Brooke has had little red spots around her left eye for a couple of weeks. They are under her eye & on her eyelid, they look like they are getting quite sore, but she doesn't seem bothered by them. Does anyone know what it is? I tried to get a photo but it was quite hard. Should I take her to the doctors?

Could it be a bit of a heat rash? may be worth popping to the docs- especially because its on her eye x

It could also be milia, which is fairly common but quite harmless.

My first thought was also heat rash. I've noticed the same on my LO, but it is not bothering her and has only appeared since the weather warmed up.

As others have said it could be a heat rash, milk spots or baby acne. If like you say they look sore then id take her to the drs. My LO had milk spots when she was a few weeks old and she needed antibiotcs as they got a little sore and infected...cleared up really quickly though
