Ladies, my little guy is 5weeks old today and has baby acne. He has little bumps on his face and neck... is that normal??? and on his neck its white bumps...what is it and how can i prevent it???

Perfectly normal. His skin is still sensitive and is getting acquainted with the environment. My ped told me not to put anything on it, just keep him clean, especially his face and hands and don´t pinch anything. Don´t get scared if it seems to get worse, my baby´s started disappearing at 6 weeks. I also put some baby powder in the "creasy" places like neck and inner thighs to keep them dry.

My DD had an awful case my doc attributed to her working my hormones out of her system. She cleared up after 2 weeks and is gorgeous now. Don't worry about scarring or anything, it is normal. Also, Annette, you didnt ask for advice about the powder, but I just wanted to let you know I heard it shouldn't be used because of problems about inhailing.

My daughter had it really bad and the doctor gave me some samples of medicated lotion. Cleared it up within a week and now her skin is soft! She had hers til about 2 1/2 months, but normally it goes away on its own....didnt with my second daughter.
