Newbie Acne-Who's got it? Added pictures

Anyone else want to commiserate with me about it? It's hot and humid here, too, so that is making my almost 4wk old break out even worse.

Maybe I'll post a picture a little later and everyone can reassure me that "totally normal-this too shall pass."

with flash


It's from the top of her head, down her neck, and a little on the chest and shoulders. Poor baby.

Re: Newbie Acne-Who's got it?

Yes, I was just thinking about this yesterday. Eli started getting tiny red bumps like 4 days ago. I am like, Eww what's going on. He was born with beautiful clear skin. I EBF I read hormones in the milk cause it but its just on his face so I'm confused. I wiped his face with a cloth wipe and warm water and it cleared a little but its still there even on his ears. We live in a humid hot area too. I hope it clears up soon.

None here yet. Knock on wood. My number 4 had terrible skin for a couple of weeks. It'll get better.

Re: Newbie Acne-Who's got it?

He was born with no thyroid gland... He's on meds & responding well to them, but it's taken a while to get to the right level. It's been hard on him to get the whole breathing & eating under control with low thyroid levels. But we're making some good progress this week. In fact he just took his first feeding that was entirely by bottle! Yay! & as much as this sucks, this also soon will pass.

Re: Newbie Acne-Who's got it?

My 4 wk old has been pretty broken out. It seems to be either acne or rashes or both. I think it seems to get worse when she has any spit up or milk on her face and it hasn't been thoroughly washed. My second had it, too, and looking back at pictures, it was looking better at a month or so.

My lo broke out around 4-1/2 weeks. Seems to be a trend here I noticed. I do live in Alabama and it is HOT here. But, since our babies got this around the same "age" (4-5 weeks), I think it's hormones shifting and them getting a little through breastmilk.
