First time parents like myself and my wife had to call the Doctor because we weren’t sure what was all over his face. Mario was between 2 and 3 weeks old when the acne (pimples) started appearing on his face. There really isn’t anything you can do but let it run it’s course. But here are a few tips to be aware of:
- Don’t squeeze, pick or scrub acne.
- Cleanse the area with water two or three times a day. Pat skin dry gently.
- Don’t use soap or lotion on affected areas.
- Avoid acne or other skin care products meant for adults.
This is a normal part of a child’s development. Don’t be alarmed. But do call your baby’s doctor if you ahev any concerns. It’s always better to be safe and err on the side of caution
