In Reply to: BABY ACNE? posted by Liz704 on November 11, 2003 at 15:32:12:

: 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!!

liz, my baby had acne and it was related to cradle cap, the doctor prescribed a dandruf shampoo for babies and that cured the cradle cap and the acne. apparently they are closely related. does your baby has cradle cap too? and if the acne is spreading to other body parts such as her back, ask your doctor for a cream, i think they suggest 1% hydrocortizone cream most of the time.
