My daughter seems to have new acne on her face then what she was born with. Could it be an allergy?? It's just like tiny pimples, I haven't been using anything but water on her face. Is there something safe I can put on her face to clear it up... like Aveno maybe?? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Its totally normal!!  Expecially in very young babies.  Its just calcium deposits the babies body will absorb then within time.  Do not try to pop them!  they will go away on there own!!

both my children had the acne. I used an over the counter hydorcortison cream 2-3 times a day based on their pediatrician advice. it works.

How old is your baby? They go through hormonal changes around 6 weeks to 4 months that may cause acne. There's really nothing you can do for it, it will go away on it's own. :)

My son has this problem too. I would also like to have some advice on this one.
