Treatments and drugs

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Because baby acne typically disappears on its own within several months, no medical treatment is usually recommended. In some cases, however, baby acne lingers for months or even longer. If your baby's acne is particularly stubborn, your baby's doctor may recommend a medicated cream or other treatment. Don't try any over-the-counter medications without checking with your baby's doctor first. Some over-the-counter products may be damaging to a baby's delicate skin.
