Baby acne?

Jackson has gotten a few spots of baby acne before but the past few days he's had quite a bit. Is this normal? Is there anything I can be doing for it? Could something be causing it?

It's normal, keep his face clean and just let it be and it will clear on it own.

Ya, my ds had it bad. They say it's just their bodies adjusting and still having too mug estrogen & other hormones from the mom. It'll pass. I hated it though :-(

:( my baby girl just put that behind her. Most important is to wipe spit up off. Plus, once a day wipe face with a damp cloth - water only.

If you are breastfeeding, put some breastmilk on it - that cleared the worst of it for us in 2 days, but keep in mind there will likely still be some as the hormones work their way out.

I wouldn't worry about it. Baby acne is completey normal. Don't try to pop it.

Yeah, don't touch it!! It may look scary but baby skin has awesome healing capabilities, you can watch a pimple resolve itself within a day.
