In brief: No treatment necc.

Usually, "baby acne" (which isn't actually acne) will go away on it's own, but in more-severe cases, treatment can be very effective.
Visit your pediatrician to determine if it is what's commonly called "acne" and discuss if any treatments are needed.

In brief: You don't have to...

Most often i find the acne will reach a peak and then resolve on its own without intervention.
But you may gently cleanse the skin and moisture with a sensitive skin, fragrance free product. Just don't use abrasive products or try to pop the bumps.

In brief: 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.
