Brief Answer:
Not a cause for concern.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. I have checked the attached image. Let me assure you that there is nothing to worry. This is due to erythema toxium, a harmless condition that occurs in children between 15 days and 3 months of age. This is not due to allergic reaction or baby lotion. No urgent attention is needed. All you need to do is to apply some moisturizer like aloe vera lotion.

Please be patient. So long as the baby is otherwise active and feeding well, you need not be worried.

Regards
