  • It could be baby acne. It does just go away on it's own.

  • babies do tend to get acne and heat rashes. i just took a damp paper towel about three times a day and lightly wiped the area to keep it clean and just let it be exposed to air. after awhile it will just go away

  • It is probably baby acne. Either leave it alone or dab a little breastmilk on it.

  • Ditto. Leave it alone. Though pure aloe is soothing and healing if it looks red.

  • Leave it alone... don't pick at it, as that will cause scarring. You could rub some breastmilk on the skin, though. :)

  • probably baby acne.. but it could also be dry chapped winter skin, try some scent free lotion for sensitive skin and see if that helps
