 Not much you can do.  It will go away on its own.

Newborn acne? You can't. It's your baby's skin adjusting to the world. Often it's caused by the oils in your skin when you touch him. I guess you could not touch. 

Bathing actually can make it worse. Keep baby clean but don't bathe too much. It strips the oils from the skin and then the skin works double time to make new-causing the acne.

I agree with the others.  Do not mess with it.

Idk if you breastfeed or not, but breastmilk cleared my LO's up really quickly. She had it bad for a while and I felt like they were never gonna go away lol, so I gave it a try and it worked wonders.
