: : : My 3 week old baby has little what looks like baby acne on her face. Not sure if that what it is but once it goes away in on spot it spreads some place else. Is there anything I can put on it to make it go away? SOmeone told me Vasaline? TIA!!

: : Consult your Ped. before using vasaline or any other product on her. The only thing I would suggest is using a clean wet wash cloth and washing her face down.

: : It's normal for infants to have this and can last up to a month or more.

: : Jennifer S.

: Thanks!! The doc said Vasaline was fine on her body but I didnt ask about face!! I'll just try the washing her face thing first!! Hopefully it'll go away soon! Thanks again!

You could also try Aveeno products. Also, make sure that you scrub her well with a soft washcloth when bathing her because sometimes babies can get cradle cap, then it spreads and causes a rash on the baby's face and if the baby touches it it spreads to her arms and chest.
