  • nope it will clear up on its own. Not that you were going to do this but dont try to pop them it can make it worse. Thats what are ped told us when our dd was young. (not that i was going to try it!) :)

  • It'll go away. Mine had it worst on her chin because she was a major drooler. Just keep it dry if it's in a drool zone and it'll go away on its own soon.

  • i just asked this question yesterday! my bby has it too. on her cheeks, forehead an lil on her chin. ive just been hearing "itll go away on its own". so guess we just have to deal with it, and leave it alone. it happens by the passing hormones from mommy to baby in utero-so until they pass, nothing rly to do about it.

  • yeah i guess. I just wish it would go away now! My daughter never had it. Funny thing is, is that when i was preg with my daughter i was breaking out a lot and she was born with clear skin. with my son i had clear skin and now he has a ton of acne. lol go figure
