Baby Acne... *pics*

Miss Marilyn has broken out pretty bad the past 2 days. I'm trying to keep the areas dry but when she's breast feeding 24/7 her cheeks and neck get hot and sweaty from where she's laying on my arm or against my skin. I know it's not hurting her but they've gotten pretty red and puffy. I attempted pics but they aren't so awesome lol just curious if there's anything I can do to make sure it doesn't get worse? Like witch hazel or something?

Ps. I love her stork bite :-)

Obviously a stork bite as the OP mentions.

It goes away. Really, nothing to worry about.

hehe my son had it bad his first few months...it'll go away on it's own.   Just keep his face and clothes clean like you would normally do.

I just cleaned ds's face with water and put aquaphor on his face and it helped clear it up.

I know...my 5yr old had it when she was little, just not this bad. Marilyn is a very warm baby and gets sweaty fast. Think it'll last the whole time I'm BFing?
