Baby Acne :(

I know it's normal for newborns to get baby acne, but seeing them all over my LO's face just makes me sad!  He had such beautiful skin for the first 2 wks, but then BOOM, the acne came on a few days and it's all over his face.  I know there's nothing I can do about it except keep his face clean (I use free & clear detergent, so I don't think the acne is caused by that)... I hope the acne clears up soon.  :(

Re: Baby Acne :(

  • Coconut oil can help clear it up. It will still run its course, but I felt like it really helped speed things along.

  • Do you BF? I hear applying a little BM does wonders.

    It does!  I've also used it on my own blemishes a few times.  Weird, but it works!

  • Dd just got some serious acne at 5 weeks.  I thought we avoided it this time...nope.  Her face is covered.  My second didn't get it, my first did.  Weird.  This too shall pass.

  • I also tried BM per my Dr's suggestion.  It worked!  It clears up within 2-4 weeks on its own, but the BM definately makes a difference.

    BM will also work on pink eye too ( can't say from experience, but I hear this is the case). It's amazing stuff! 



  • My pedi said it peaks around 4-6 weeks, DD has been pretty bad for a few days. Then within the last day her tear duct clogged! Now her beautiful face looks all sorts of uncomfortable. I'm totally going to try BM on it!

  • We thought our 5 week old had baby acne that was normal until yesterday the doctor diagnosed it as baby eczema  and suggested using only Aveeno Eczema lotion twice a day.
