Doctors said this is baby ance? Is it anything to do with my breast milk? I have never seen anything so bad before? And tips to make it go away? She 6 weeks old. Thanks

My baby boy is 8 weeks old & was just diagnosed with baby acne. His symptoms look the same as your baby girl.

I read apparently it is a reaction to the hormones in breastmilk.

Did you find anything that worked? Hope your baby girls skin has returned to normal.

My little boy had quite bad baby acne ( also breastfed) I found that calendula cream cleared it up. Of course it could have been a coincidence but it seemed to work

Thank you for replying!

I have Waleeda's Calendula baby face cream and wasn't sure if I should use it for baby acne. The GP prescribed Doublebase Dayleve Gel but I am not convinced as he starts scratchibg as soon as I apply it. Will try the natural remedy.

Thanks again.
