Acne: Usually the treatment duration with doxycycline for acne is 3 months. Your physician or dermatologist will guide you about what is appropriate for you, however.

Observe: Baby acne is common and should resolved within 2-3 months. You may want to use a mild soap such as cetaphil. No other treatment is necessary for mild acne.

It's like acne...: It's exactly like regular acne, except blackheads are uncommon, and of course it is in a baby, under 6 months usually. There is actually another baby rash called "erythema toxicum" that looks a lot like acne, but since neither one needs any treatment and both go away on their own, the difference is not at all important.
