Would use a treatment on your baby's acne?

My baby has been having some pretty bad acne but I would never use a facial scrub or astringent on a baby.... but I have heard of some parents doing it. So would you?

use a tiny bit of corn starch 

just put a dab on your hand first then take your finger and put on his spots -- helps get the oil out and clears them up

i just put vaseline, which creates a waterproof barrier.  generally the redness is caused by excessive drool.  I use Vaseline also for the same reason to prevent diaper rashes.

No way.  It's completely normal and will go away on it's own.  Why would I put something so hard on my baby??
