Keep his face dry no lotion nothing...the more you put stuff on it the worst it will be

It's best to just leave baby acne alone and it will just go away. Breastmilk can help. However, I never had mine spread like that... Could it be anything else? Heat rash maybe?

When I had kid #1 and #2 I washed their face and it was so bad and lasted forever... With baby #3 I didn't touch it and it didn't get bad and went away fast

Aquaphor is the best ... I would avoid soap .. When i put soap it got worse for my baby .. I just wash his body with water and the face too .. Just put avenoo non perfume one to hair the dark bleu one ๐Ÿ˜€

If you breast feed put some milk on a washcloth and was her face with it daily

Cetaphil works great for babies! Our Dr recommended we use only Cetaphil on LO face.

Our ped recommended Cetaphil also. We has it once per day and 1% Hydrocortisone cream, worked wonders!!! His face cleared up in a few days and we've had no problems since ๐Ÿ‘

Yes, it's face wash. You can get Cetaphil at any store. They make a children's hydrocortisone cream too that we use.
