  • Just leave it alone. It will clear up on it's own. The worst thing you could do is mess with it, because then it can get inflamed and scar. Just be gentle and let it clear.

  • Wash Aveeno. I also pat my son's face with warm chamomile tea. It helps soothe the itching and I see a difference after a few days.

  • Honestly I wouldn't wash with anything more than a warm wet washcloth VERY gently. You don't want to irritate the little pimples or they will take longer to go away and do not try to pop them. They usually don't last long. Unless the skin is really dry then I wouldn't put anything on it all. If it is dry I would put just a dab of Cetaphil lotion on.
