My baby has acne and now his face is left with little pimples and dry skin does that mean his acne is gone?

Baby acne. Baby acne can start around 6 weeks of age and last until 3 months of age. It will often come and go in phases, much like adolescent acne. Make sure you are using sensitive skin (fragrance free, dye free) soaps and lotions to this sensitive area. Call your doctor if things are getting worse.
