Baby acne or something else?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I'm on an elimination diet due to Lil's excessive gas & crying. She had the green mucousy poop that's a sign of dairy sensitivity. She has a bit of a rash on her face/neck, that's moved to her ears. I don't know if its just baby acne or maybe a rash from the dairy sensitivity? I'm putting a bit of coconut oil on the dry scaly patches, which right now just seems to be her little ear lobes.

I don't have much experience with baby skin issues, but that looks rashy to me :( I hope it clears up soon, poor baby!

It may just be newborn rash. Scaly is normally a sign of cradle cap. John had it on his face and earlobes. I put olive oil on and washed it off with baby soap scrubbing with a washcloth. It cleared up in a day or two. I don't know anything about allergy rashes on babies.
