it will go away. dont worry, babys skin has been in water for 10 months it takes time for it to toughen up so to speak in the real world. My son you tog et outbreaks and then theyd clear up and come back for a few months. It is normal.Congrats on the baby!

I wouldn't put anything on his face for the acne because that will go away on its own. Is he breastfed?
As for the rash and having sensitive skin, I use Arbonne's Baby Care line on my three boys ages 5 months to 7 years. They all have sensitive skin and eczema and the products have been phenomenal. I could send you some amazing before and after pictures! Just send me an email to ____@____.com and I'll send them your way.
Unlike a lot of companies, we don't have monthly requirements so you just get what you want when you want.
I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Personally, I loved the French Mustella products. They have a no rinse cleansing water, which I used on my son all the time when he was a baby, and it really seemed to soothe his skin. You can check out their website at www.mustella.com and no, I am not affiliated with their company. My girlfriends told me about them and I tried them out for myself. Other than that, don't worry too much. The acne will go away, along with the cradle cap and all the other stuff that they get right after birth.

My son had it when he was about 1yrs. I was told to not pick at it our touch it you can cause scars. The best thing you can do is use a hypo allergetic baby cleanser. Have you ever heard of Arbonne they are a swedish company with natural products. I use their diaper rash cream and it's great. They may have a cleanser that is gentle for babies.I know that they have a baby line.

C., congratulations on your new son!! My oldest also had acne as well as rashes. At some point, I think when he was quite a bit older than yours but still an infant, I started rinsing everything in my washing machine by using an entire extra wash cycle. After a laundry load finishes washing, I run the entire load again, but don't add any detergent. I don't add anything at all during the entire second cycle. This extra rinsing has actually cured my own eczema, so I've continued to rinse all my clothes in a complete extra cycle, even though none of my kids have had acne or rashes for a long, long time.

We've always used Weleda baby cream for our daughter for any rash--it's so gentle and very healing and natural. You can get it at the health food store or at whole foods. Hope this helps!

My twin girls had the same thing and my pediatrician told me it's part and parcel of babyhood. He said it will clear up on it's own but that if I wanted to I could put Aquaphor on it. It's a little greasy but it's great for many things, like dry patches. Good luck!
