Hi. I am hoping there is some OTC remedy for this and am curious to see what people have found works? My boy has really dry skin on his cheeks and forehead/scalp. I use baby oil after each bath. Is there some cream that is supposed to work called something like Penaten? Or anything? I feel like my little guy can't be comfy with that crud on his face. He also has newborn acne. Thanks!

Hi docbytch, my 3 weeks old dd has got newborn acne too since she was just a week old but no dry skin. She has a lot of acne this time but it looks like its starting to disappear. She scratches her face sometimes and when she does it, her face turns red. Its hurrible! I was told by my doctor that its common to the newborns. Nothing we can do about it, it will just go away within few weeks. I was not advised to use creams or med for it as it may just get worsen on babies sensitive skin . Wipe your baby's face with cotton soaked in warm water everytime is the only solution and make sure dont use strong detergent in washing ur baby's clothes. Hope it helps for you.
