Common Baby Health Problems Parents Should Be Aware Of
Baby acne is another one of those common infant problems that, like colic, is temporary. It usually appears in the first couple weeks after your baby’s birth. Red dots resembling tiny pimples will appear on your baby’s nose, forehead, cheeks, and even back and chest. There’s not much you can do to prevent baby acne. It’s likely caused by Mom’s hormones, which are still circulating in the baby’s bloodstream. Once it appears, all you can do is be patient and wait for it to clear up. It doesn’t cause your baby any discomfort. Baby acne should disappear entirely by the time she reaches six months, without leaving any scars behind.
