Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Try these tips to help your baby's skin look its best:

  • Keep your baby's face clean. Wash your baby's face with warm water daily. If your baby's skin seems oily, especially around the nose area, you can also use a mild moisturizing soap, such as Dove.
  • Dry your baby's face gently. Simply pat your baby's skin dry.
  • Avoid any other type of treatment. Don't pinch or scrub the tiny bumps, and don't use any type of lotions, oils or medicated creams on your baby's skin. Simply wash your baby's face with warm water and look forward to the clearer days ahead.
