There could be a number of things that could be causing these red bumps on your baby's face -- baby acne, hives, or a number of other rashes. Have you had a chance to have the rash looked at by your daughter's pediatrician? He/she will be able to make a diagnosis after a physical examination and determine what, if any, treatment is necessary. You might look through our Baby Rashes and Skin Care Directory to see if any of the rashes or conditions listed match what you are seeing on your daughter's face.

Best wishes,
