  • Keep your baby's face clean. Wash your baby's face with warm water daily. For babies with acne, use a mild moisturizing facial soap several times a week and rinse with warm water.
  • Dry your baby's face gently. Simply pat your baby's skin dry.
  • Don't pinch or scrub the acne. You may cause more irritation or an infection.
  • Avoid using lotions or oils on your baby's skin.
