My baby 7weeks old & developed spots on her cheeks that turned into red rash & is now flakey, dry & pealing off. She's had them for almost a week now! It' doesn't seem to be causing her distress or pain... Does this sound like milkspots if so how long do they take to go......? They just look so unsightly sad

Hi my DD had this at around that age (she's now 11 months). It didn't bother her at all but did look awful - she had it on her cheeks and ears. My HV recommended Diprobase, which made her smell like a pharmacy but did work though it took a while.

Hey we had the same problem.

Eventually HV recommended Oilatum cream, four times a day, applied to the face.

Cleared it up a treat, but DS was very dry, red, and I'm not sure it was milk spots... Best to ask your GP or HV!
