They are only on one side of her face and head. Can anyone advise what these could be

Has she been asleep?? They could just be a heat/irritation rash from where she's been laid?

How old? Possibly neonatal acne. DD in particular had it on the side she'd slept on most recently. The heat/sweat seems to bring it out.

Thanks. She's 4 weeks old. Was sleeping whilst I was shopping & I didn't notice she had became quite warm. Then when I picked her up I noticed these spots. It's probably a heat rash but just wanted to check.

They look quite irritating. If they don'the go down withinow an hour or so I would take her for a check at the out of hours doctor.

Ds gets those. However he's much older. I would get them checked if they haven't faded.
