Can Babies Get Acne?

Babies Get Acne Too

It is true, babies get acne too.  It is also very common for a baby to have acne  or skin irritation. This kind of acne is different and usually temporary. While it looks worse than it really is. Here are a few things to know about your baby’s skin problem.

Soon after your baby is born small red bumps may appear on their cheeks, forehead or chin. Some babies have white spots on top called milia. When your baby cries they may appear more red and more pronounced. This is not a sign that it has become worse, just the way the skin looks when flushed.

It is believed that hormonal change in the mother can cause this skin issue on a newborn. Also, babies have super sensitive skin and the harsh items in the  environment can often causes a “breakout”.
