Make sure that you aren't using harsh soaps or laundry detergents. It is best to use gentle products that are fragrance free. If you or people in your family wear perfume or cologne, you can try having them stop wearing it for a few days and see if that helps (my daughter breaks out whenever my dad visits because he wears a generous amount of cologne). Fragrance causes breakouts in adults too! Some of it is just normal though, and as the previous poster said, it will go away. My daughter had it on and off for months to a varying degree. It's not due to clogged pores the way that adult acne is. If it isn't caused by an external irritant, just let it be.
