Baby Acne

Baby acne or pimples that break out on the face, typically during the fourth or fifth week of life, are harmless. Doctors believe the acne is caused by pregnancy hormones stimulating the oil glands in the skin. Signs: Baby acne looks similar to adult acne. Treatment: Gently wash your baby's face with mild baby soap once a day. Avoid laundering the crib sheets in harsh detergents.
