You are very welcome. The rash you describe is one of the most common passing rashes that many babies develop at this age. It is thought to be due to a hormonal cause. The rash is called milia. No treatment is needed except gentle wiping of her face with plain water when you are bathing her or wiping her face.The rash will soon disappear.
