Baby acne's harmless: No need to treat it, unless they start throwing baby proms, with corsages and limos. Then you probably want them to look their best for the date.

None, if baby acne: Baby acne usually occurs in the first month or so, and goes away on its own (it doesn't bother the baby). Around the time the baby acne fades away, he may start getting cradle cap (oily, flaky rash with reddened skin underneath) on the scalp and the face (called seborrhea on the face). Baby eczema (cracked, rough, and/or oozing skin) can begin too. Cradle cap, seborrhea, & eczema have treatments
