sounds like baby acne my dd had it pretty bad too, my doc said not to worry about it, it will clear its self up in time, but if she is a passy baby the bumps on her chin could get irritated from the moisture so my doc said just to put a small amount of vaseline intensive care there.

All it is from is your hormones from when you were pregnant.  The best thing to do is leave them alone.  Putting things on them could leave scars or holes in the pores.   And you dont want that.

Milk bumps, Baby acne..... whatever you call it it sucks!! My son had this too when he was 6 weeks or so. I was so upset....I hated it!! I found out that it is from hormones that they recieve when they are still in your belly. Jackson's went away about 2 weeks later. I don't think there is anything that you can do .... other wise I would have done it. Sorry! It will go away.
