|When you are giving your baby a bath, wet his face and anywhere else the spots are, then take a small dot of Selsun Blue Shampoo, being very careful not to get any in his eyes, rub it on the area and leave it there while you finish washing him elsewhere. At the end of the bath, take a damp washcloth and wipe the shampoo off in a direction away from his eyes.
It was a pediatrician, long ago who told me that baby acne is "cradle cap" on the face. It happens when flakes of skin get into the sensitive pores. He said to ignore what you read in books about scraping the scalp after applying oil, he said that that treatment makes it worse and that selsun blue shampoo will work for the scalp AND the face. He was right on. The first time I tried it, it took a few days to completely clear up the spots because they were so bad, but after that, I treated them as they appeared and they were gone in a couple of hours. It doesn't take much, just once per day as needed during bath time. If there are no spots, don't treat.
nicole , mom to 3 boys here on earth 9, 7 and 4.5 and 2 girl's 2.5 and 10/16/11. Always remembering my babies in heaven: Sam (9/7/05) at 12.5 wks , Morgan (2/13/06) at 6 wks , Emeric (8/9/10 at 17 wks) and Pepper (11/26/10) at 8wks.
My poor baby. Seeing his skin just makes me hurt. I remember Nolan going through this, but I don't remember it being this bad. And I can't remember how long it lasted. Anyone have a clue?
