Baby Acne

Please help us get rid of baby acne!!!! I've tried breast milk, coconut oil, and California Baby calendula cream. Nothing seems to help.

For us the less I mess with it the faster it clears up.

Re: Baby Acne

It just goes away on its own. It's hormonal.

Just leave it. I had to stop all the tricks and just let Levi's run its course. Sucks but honestly it's hormonal. So putting crap on it helps none.

Re: Baby Acne

I know it's hard but leave it alone and it'll go away pretty quick!

A friend says daily bathing fixes it. But I thought it was hormonal.

Bens is pretty bad, but after a bath it gets better.

I can't tell if Adella has a rash or baby acne. It's on her arms, neck and chest, but not her face. Not sure what it is.

Re: Baby Acne

Lincoln has it something terrible! We were told to just leave it alone....aside from washing his face at bath time. It will clear up on its own. His gets better and then flares up again, better, flares up, etc.
