Rash on forehead


Seems like i'm allways on here asking for advice! I feel sooo ignorant!

My LO has a rash on her forehead-tiny raised bumps with a small patch that looks a bit red.

Is this just another common skin complaint that babies get and i don't need to be concerned?

Allways worried about something......

Any advice would be appreciated.

Is she ok in herself? no temp? not whingey etc?
My LO often gets rashes- either heat rash or when she eats dairy, but it might be worth asking your doc or health visitor. Have u changed washing powder or anything? Izzy used to get a rash when she was diddy, as she used to cuddle up to us, and we washed our things in bio washing powder, we had to switch to non bio too.
sorry does that make any sense at all? x

Zander kept a rash on his forehead as a baby and its coming back but it was diagnosed as eczema so if your lo keeps it might be worth checking with a dr... does she try to scratch it?? that was our indication that it was eczema he scratched it til it bled as soon as he learned he could scratch

My daughter has gotten several rashes on her face, I just put aquaphor on them and they always go away. Babies get all kinds of weird rashes it seems like, I guess its just their skin adjusting. xx

Thanks for the replies. No temperature or scatching-fortunately!!!

She is getting her 8 week jabs tomorrow so i'll ask about it then. She has been on my chest alot for the last few days so maybe it is heat rash as you suggested.

Wish babies came with a picture manual!

This sounds similar to what my LO had the other week. Turned out it was a reaction to Johnsons bubble bath. Stopped using it and it went in a few days. Have you been using any products that could case a reaction?

Ask nurses advice tomorrow as you've said. Its likely to be nothing, but better to check and put your mind at ease.
