My daughter had horrible acne when born. Just leave it alone and it will go away. Like the first poster said it is hormones. Every baby is different so it may stay for a couple months or be gone in a few weeks.

I agree with Tawni, but if that isn't working, I was reading in a baby book that I have (for the life of me I can't remember which one) and it said that if you make a weak mixture of vinegar and water and pat it on the acne that should help especially if it is bothering the baby or is really red and painful. Hopefully that helps.

Just leave it alone. New babies get acne because their skin is still adjusting and trying to get all of your hormones out of their system. I was told to just leave it alone and it goes away by itself :]
