1 Bump

Eczema, dairy allergy,heat rash,or baby acne??

My son (6 weeks old this upcoming Sunday) has tiny red bumps all over. I am not sure what it is because when I googled all of thee above they all looked the same. It doesn't seem to bother him, he's not throwing up, or having gas I have been leaving him in only a diaper or a short sleeved onzie most of the day. The bumps are on his face and tummy...What does it sound like???

  • Like the PP said, it sound like baby acne, my poor girls got it so bad. It will go away no worries. If you get too concerned you could always check with your doctor. I know I did with my second...her baby acne freaked me out.

  • i have never seen baby acne, but all 4 of my boys had eczema. They mainly had the patches on their cheeks, but 2 out of the 4 had patches on their belly. Aquaphore worked for 3 out of the 4 boys, but my 11 month old has to get a prescription cream for it on his cheeks. I would take baby in to see what the bumps are. Good Luck
