In brief: Dont

Its not really acne, its just hair follicles developing normally.
You dont need to put anything, but check with your doctor if not sure.

In brief: Patience

Babies sit in the equivalent of moisturizers and cold cream prior to delivery, cancelling the effect of pregnancy/maternal hormones and air drying on the skin.
Within a few weeks, neonatal acne will emerge on most infants and continue to some extent for weeks until it disappears by 4 months of age. No treatment beyond keeping the skin clean is justified by this transient process.
