Advice for how to treat baby acne?

My baby is 4 weeks old and has had acne on his cheeks, nose, and forehead for a couple of weeks now. Is this normal? How do I treat it? Not gonna lie, I'm starting to get worried!

Yes, it’s totally normal! It usually lasts for a month or so, hang in there. I know it’s awful but it is a sign that you have a growing baby, which is great!! 0 Likes

I read on a blog that some moms think the pimples look less irritated when breastmilk is applied. Haven’t tried it yet but definitely going to. 0 Likes

First I hate to say t his but try not to allow people to kiss your baby. I know that seems a little harsh but all your acne spots are kissing spots. I got that little tip from one of the older women at church when I had my first baby. Try A&D ointment 0 Likes

just gently wipe with a cool washcloth. DONT POP THEM. Also more frequent bath time may help. 0 Likes
