Baby Acne?

I was wondering about Claira's face because she got some sort of pimples on her face and neck. I was thinking that maybe it's because of the milk coz she spits up everyday and I also thought that maybe it's because of her fingernails coz I didn't put mittens on her hands anymore so she can see her fingers and start exploring on how to use them. Well, that's what I thought but I'm not sure if I'm right so before calling Claira's Pedia I search online about it and got the answer I need. The pimples on Claira's face is called Baby Acne and it tends to occur at about the same age as the baby's peak gas production and fussiness. The acne will be most prominent when she's hot or fussy (increased blood flow to the skin), or when her skin is irritated. If her skin comes into contact with cloth laundered in harsh detergents, or becomes wet from saliva or milk that she has spit up, the condition may appear worse for several days. Cleaning her face once a day with water, and perhaps a mild baby soap is what I can do. Oils and lotions do not help, and may aggravate the condition. If the acne is severe or lasts beyond 6 months then a pediatrician may prescribe a mild medicine to help. But as what I read, there is no need to treat it. We'll see of what Claira's Pedia will say on her next appointment.

HI Mommy Michelle...

I think our little one had those little pimple-like on her face as well. I don't think we put anything to them. They went away after a while.

Enjoy the weekend.

Hi how are you hope all is well... The doctors told my daughter to keep my grandsons face washed or wiped with baby wipes to keep the milk and foods and stuff off his skin... It has cleared up his little face with no problems... Have a wonderful day..
