  • Plugged ducts can happen anytime. They are more promanent with puberty.

    Just wash her face more often and it will go away.

  • baby acne is NOT a pimple. baby acne is milia which is different from a papule or pustule (terms for pimple).

    yes a kid can get a rare papule or pustule, it's just not as common to them.

    milia is more common in babies and toddlers.

    None are dangerous to children and will typically go away on their own.
