Question: Hi..my baby is 23 days old..there is small red pimples on her face and body..what is this?
Answer: Baby acne is very common and usually harmless. I believe the best advice is to leave it alone. Many moisturizers have alcohol, petrolatum or mineral oil which actually make acne worse. Overly washing can dry out the skin which in turn causes the skin to secrete more sebum. Acne can be caused by hormonal changes in the newborn. It is normal and it will go away. Make sure to use gentle fabric detergent for the clothes and bedding. I personally put breast milk on it and the rash went away. Breast milk also helps heal the scratches from little fingernails in less than a day. You can try this once as it has no side effects.
