Baby Acne or Baby Eczema?

(1 Post)

Hello everyone,
My 3 week old DS has developed some spots over his face which have now spread to the top of his chest and the back of the neck. I was thinking that it was baby acne, but I am now worrying that it might be eczema.
Does anyone know if eczema also looks better when they are calm/sleeping and looks a lot more red when overheated or angry/crying? Or does eczema always look red?
I have an appointment with the pediatrician tomorrow to check it out, but I was wondering if anyone here has experience of this.
