Previous Next 4 of 6 Baby acne

Baby acne appears as red or white bumps on a baby's forehead or cheeks. The condition often develops within the first month after birth, perhaps due to exposure to maternal hormones during pregnancy. Baby acne usually disappears on its own within a few months.

In the meantime, wash your baby's face once a day with water and a mild soap. Consult your baby's doctor if the acne doesn't improve within a few months or you'd like to consider more aggressive treatment.
