Baby Acne Information

One in three newborns gets BABY ACNE on the face by about 4 weeks of age which lasts up to four acne cartoon

It might be caused by mother androgen hormones which pass to the baby just before birth causing temporary raging hormones similar to teen puberty. No treatment is needed for baby acne because it is harmless and will go away on its own. Smothering your baby's face with lotions makes the condition worse by clogging their pores.

Rarely, if one pimple becomes enlarged, red, and pustular a topical antibiotic cream may be called for. Otherwise simple wiping of excess grease from the face with dry tissues is all that is needed.
