butt paste to treat baby acne?

Ive heard that you can put a small amount of the diaper rash cream "butt paste" on the babies face if they have baby acne. Has anyone tried this and did it clear it up?

  • It will work. Baby acne forms from the moisture of drool and chafing. However, your baby can get it in their mouth and it's not good for them, so I'd just wait until it goes away on its own- and it will.

  • It will go away on its own. If you must put on something...just plain aloe.
