    My 2 month old has a bumpyish red rash on both cheeks, it's not REALLY bad or visible, doesn't seem to itch or irritate her, just a few bumpy spots sorta thing, I've looked it up on google and it says that it's where baby dribbles and it get's wiped over their face etc. I've put some E45 cream on and it's soothed it a bit, as it's quite dry. Anyone else had this??? :wacko:
    I seem to notice every little thing with her!

    Proberly a dribble rash, or if shes teething they can get a rash it could be that... Its normal and should go on its own x

    Daisy has this too, on both cheeks, health visitor said it was baby acne and is quite normal, just to wipe it each time we change her with water and if it got too bad use some e45 cream

    if you rub breast milk into the area it helps it clear up.

    brianna had that for a while and it comes back at random its totally normal. It'll go away and flare back up at random for a while. If it seems like it gets to bothering her though I'd get some medical advice though
