Baby Acne!

Anyone doing anything for this?  I know it bothers me and not LO but I'd like to do whatever I can to help it go away faster.

Re: Baby Acne!

  • I used (and still do) Cetaphil (the pump kind). I wash LOs face in the morning and evening... all cleared up!

  • My l had it for 5 weeks and is just now starting to clear up.  Nothing I did made it any better.  I just had to wait it out.

  • Not sure if you BF or formula feed , but some people on the breastfeeding board have said breast milk clears it up.
  • My 3 week old has the same issue. I put some breast milk on it a couple of times yesterday and let it air dry, and it's already looking better today. Pretty cool!

    The best thing you can do is leave it alone other than washing his face with a very mild baby soap and drying it well once a day. My DS got some pretty bad acne around a week and a half and now at 3 weeks old it's getting much better.

  • I am dealing with this too!  DD is 8 weeks and over the past few days it has really flared up.  I called the pedi and she said to ignore it.  I read somewhere to put baby powder on it to help dry it up so I tried it and don't really see a difference.

  • My daughter hsa it but the doctor said not to worry about it, it will clear up. i also notice that when she gets hot, she breks out in bumps and they go away in a day or so. I try to keep her as cool as possible but it is really hot where i live.
