Baby Acne, how long?

DD has had baby acne for the last few days. We've been using water to wash her face twice a day, but it's still getting worse.

How long does baby acne last?

    DS had it pretty bad from about 2 weeks to 8 weeks.  He just gets one little spot every now and then now at almost 3 months.

    DD had REALLY bad acne up to about a month.  At her one month appt the pedi noticed that the acne had changed from the little whiteheads to just red bumps.  He thought it was the beginning of a rash similar to cradle cap and gave us a prescription for hydrocortisone cream.  It cleared up soon after we started using that.

    If it is the tiny whiteheads for the most part I wouldn't worry...its annoying but harmful and will go away when it wants to!

    At 7 wks old, we still have it, but it's much better than it was a week or two ago. We use Aquafor on his face as recommended by the Pedi and it usually gives us a noticeable difference by the next morning. GL!

    DD had acne from about 3 weeks old until she was about 7 weeks old. It would get worse, then get a little better, then get worse again. I asked her pedi about it at her 1 month appt and she said to leave it alone. We did, and it cleared up on its own.

    DS only had it noticeably for about 2 weeks, he still has one here and there, but mostly they are gone!
