Baby acne - when does it disappear?

You would think I would know the answer to this as it is my third baby, but I don't!

He is 4 weeks old, has red spots all over his face, kneck and upper chest. They have been there for about 2 weeks and I am wondering when they will go.

6-8 weeks iirc

Yep, I agree with LizS - although they can be prone to further outbreaks later on. Baby DS has been mainly spot free since he was 6wo.

My DD got baby acne at about 4 weeks and it went 1 or 2 weeks ago. She's 9 weeks old. She's just got a patch of rough skin on her poor face now - hope it's not eczema sad
