White "seeds" in his skin

Posted by on Aug. 25, 2012 at 10:16 PM

Hello, I'm new here and I need some advice. My 12 week old son has several spots on his face and arms that look like hard white seeds. They seem to be in his skin and don't bother him but I would like to remove them. Does anyone know what these are? Will they disappear on their own? Is there a way to safely remove them? Thank you for any help you can offer!

I remember those.  They are alarming looking, but normal.

 Totally normal every baby I've ever known has had them. I just wiped DS's face with a warm wet washcloth a few times a day, and they went away.

I forget when they went away but I think most babies have them at some point.
