How long does baby acne last?


My little boy over the last 2 days has officially gotten his baby acne, and he has alot of little dots all over his face. How long does it usually last?

My little boy had this for nearly 3 weeks. We happened to have a doctor's appointment and while I thought it would pass on its own, he prescribed Oilatum cream which cleared it completely within 3 or 4 days (and he had it quite badly.) The cream helped to clear the dryness that came with it too and now he has lovely soft skin.
I used the Oilatum Junior cream 3 times a day and still apply it now after a bath just to make sure it doesn't come back!
The cream is also available to buy in Boots but free on prescription obviously!

Lasted about two weeks I think. Didn't use any creams just a daily wash with water and it went all by itself.

Does the acne always get pretty bad and what week did it happen for your LO?
My friends baby got the baby acne really bad, I know she had it at 5 weeks, but forgot to ask if it went away.

My little boy had milk spots when he was born and they lasted about 6 weeks they just cleared up on their own!

3-4 weeks seems to be the popluar time. Fingers crossed it goes away in 2-3 weeks. They started of mild with just 2-3 of them, now they ae all over his poor cheeks.

LO had it quite bad from about week 3 to week 6 or so. He still gets spots every now and then. I've read recently that putting breastmilk on it can help.
