Need some advice..

My 6 month old baby has pimple like dots around the lid and underneath her right eye and a little on the left eye. It seems to show up more after a bath. More on the right eye than left. If we don't bathe her every day, like say give her a bath every other day it seems to clear. Has anyone had this happen to their baby? Can anyone tell me what might be causing it?

  • she may be allergic to the shampoo or baby wash you are using. Or maybe even the washcloth (what was it laundered in?)

  • That really sounds like a detergent allergy. I would call the pediatrician and ask about it to be safe. The eyes are not something to fool with.

  • baby acne. if she were alergic to soap, it would be on all of her body, not just her face. my girl has the same thing.
