  • I put breastmilk on my baby's acne and it cleared up overnight. I even use it on my own acne and it works better than any medication that I ever used.

  • They will go away on their own. DO NOT SQUEEZE OR PICK AT THEM!

  • My daughter had a terrible case of Baby Acne. I changed Pediatricians 3 times before I got an solution. Pediatrician gave us a perscription for Hydrocortisone and a bacteria ointment. Do not put any soaps or unauthorized cream on it.

    My answer: Go to your Pediatrician

  • Do not attempt to treat the acne or pop the pimples. Most babies get acne as the mother's hormones work out of the baby's body. This is normal. Any acne medication is bad for the baby. They will go away on their own.

    The breast milk option would be be perfectly safe as it is all natural.

  • Don't touch. They will go away on their own. It is hormones and reaction to the air outside the womb. Very normal. My daughter had it too, it looked horrible for a few weeks and then they went away all of a sudden.
