Benjamin has had the white little bumps since birth...his made two months yesterday. They are on his face around his eyes, nose and mouth and on his arm and chest. I have no clue how to get rid of them. At his one month his doctor told me to use Cetaphil soap, and I did try, but it didn't help and I was scared to get it in his eyes. Anyone have any ideas or have dealt with it?



Thanks, Konda

it could be "milk bumbs" or ezema

wash with a mild soap dry and use eucerin cream

Both my daughters went through a baby acne stage and while it looked horrible, it was harmless and was not something that needed to be treated. I made sure I washed the baby's face with a wet washcloth everyday (no soap or chemicals) and avoided picking or squeezing any of the bumps. It will just go away on its own. It took a couple of weeks for my daughters' skin to go back to being beautiful clear soft skin.
