My 2 1/2 week old boy has acne all over his face...it started coming up yesterday. How do i fix it? How do I prevent it in the future?

hi. My son had terrible baby acne. It started approx 2 weeks after birth. It is very common and is caused by the maternal hormones in his body. There is nothing to do.. .it will disappear on it's own in about 2-3 weeks. My son is now 3 months and has beautiful skin. During his bout with acne I was very concerned... dr. told me to wash his face once a day with Johnson's baby soap and washcloth... and then just a warm washcloth before night time. I know its alarming -- it will subside soon! Hang in there!

Nothing u can do, and no way to prevent it. I make sure to wipe his face w/ plain warm water 2-3X's a day so I get all the spit up and drool off. It just goes away on it's own.

You just basically have to wait it out! My daughter had it pretty bad for awhile and then all of a sudden it was just gone, and now her skin is perfect!
