There could be many reasons for the bumps, the three common ones being...
1. A mild viral infection - may have mild fever/ irritability / cold etc.
2. A heat rash - may have begin with some sweating, overclothing etc.
3. A mild allergic reaction to something new either used on the skin, or taken orally
I would recommend checking if the rash appears to increase or cause her some discomfort and fever, and then show her to the pediatrician as needed,
Let me know if you need more information,
