My baby has these little white bumps all over his face. What could they be and should I take him to the doctor?

Call your PCP if you are worried.  I would ask and see what they say.  A nurse might be able to help you over the phone or get you to schedule an appointment with the doctor.

A lot of newborn babies get these they are usually because of blocked oil glands and are not a cause for cocern. If your baby is eating and having the normal number of wet/dirty diapers I wouldn't be worried. My son and daughter both got these and I just made sure I cleaned their faces with Aveeno baby wash in the tub. I used a washcloth and just lightly cleaned the skin, they usually clear up. I will say that if your gut is saying to take your baby to the doctor, always take him to the doctor but I really think these are quite common. You can even call his doctor and ask to speak to the nurse and see what she says.

Sounds like baby acne, but it might be worth calling your pediatrician if you're concerned.  Better safe than sorry!
