Is this baby acne?

My DD is five weeks old and over the last few days has developed what looks like baby acne on her face and neck only. What do you think? I'm seeing the health visitor on Friday but wanted to see what other people thought. Thanks!

Yes it does look like baby acne to me, though 5 weeks is on the late side for it to appear so best to check with the HV just in case. DD2 had it terribly for about 4-5 weeks but it didn't bother her at all (just me!)

Aw my lb had all sorts of rashes/spots for his first few months. I used sudocrem for most of them which helped.
We later found out that what I thought was baby acne was actually a reaction to dairy from my diet. Just something to keep in mind if he's unsettled/failing to thrive.

My dd1 had really bad baby acne. Someone recommended aveeno when dd2 was born and at the first sign I put that on. It disappeared and never came back.
