Is there anything I can do to help baby acne go away? My LO is just over two weeks and she's formed a rash on her cheeks that look like white heads almost! And I don't want to put lotion on her face, but it's really drying out her skin on her face! Is there anything I can do, or does it go away on its own? Thank you! 😊

My niece had this same problem when she was a baby, I believe my sister got some kind of cream from the doctor to clear it up. I wouldn't use anything without asking a dr first bc you wouldn't wanna chance making it any worse

It will go away on its own just be patient. Eczema lotion helps with the dryness

My baby is two weeks as well and had the same problem, but it was because we kissed him soo much, we kept away from his face a few days and the acne went away & we put lotion on him, almost gone now, just like 3 bumps left

Leave it alone. Use a warm wet wash cloth to wipe it off a couple times a day. Dont put topical cream and don't pick it. My son had it for three weeks all over. I was told to do that and it healed it's self.

We wiped our LO's face with wet warm cloth and used Aveeno baby eczema lotion a couple times a day. It cleared up in a few days :)

Baby acne is normal. I would still lotion the face if it's becoming dry. The dryness will be more uncomfortable than a few pimples.

We used Mustela Physiobebe, and it worked really well for my LO. If we forgot to do it for a day then the acne would get worse again. Baby acne only temporary (my LO's lasted for ~1 month), and it probably bothers you more than your baby, but I know I was so worried it was hurting my LO. I think the Physiobebe is definitely worth a try.

Breastmilk clears it up really fast. Just rub it on and let air dry. I did it every feeding and it cleared up in a day or two. Also coconut oil is a natural antibiotic. I've heard that works great also. We are currently using coconut oil for a allergy rash on my LOs face. It's helping a lot.

I used coconut oil a few times a day for my guy and it works wonders! I even use for diaper rashes. Love that stuff.

It eventually goes away oh its own.. Sometimes it takes a month or two... I work out Breast milk in my LO a couple times a day which would help it slightly.. But don't put anything on it.. And at bathtime just wipe with a warm wash cloth.. Lotions can make it worse
