Doubt diagnosis & rx: Two weeks is the expected peak for infants normal baby acne, a reflection of the hormones of pregnancy.It is not apparent when first born, having floated in a moist environment for months. This reflects the transient effect of hormones in pregnancy that fade without treatment in 2-4 weeks. I have never treated "hives" in a 2 wk old in 3+ decades of pediatric practice.
