Brief Answer:
These are normal.Nothing needs to be done if the child is active and fine

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

These rashes are normal for a baby of 1-2 months age. No need to worry about it. No ointment needs to be applied. However, if you wish, you can apply calamine lotion as a soothing agent. Nothing else needs to be done if the child is otherwise active and fine.
