  • My son has "pimples" all the time. It's probably nothing, if it doesn't bother her. If it does then I would take her back to the doc, or to the ER if its REALLY bothering her. Good luck, Hope things get better for you!!!

  • babies get pimples too believe it or not, and it's perfectly normal. Most of it's because of left over hormones from you, and if you are breast feeding, they tend to get them for a while longer. As long as it's not irritating her, then I wouldn't worry too much about it, they will go away on their own.
