Baby acne in 8-month-old????

My DS is 8 1/2 months old, almost exclusively breast-fed (no serious interest in solids but thriving - 22 lbs and 28 inches), and has had baby acne for at least 6 weeks. Looks like pimples, red rim and white heads. He won't let me squeeze them (which I know I shouldn't do anyway) but how do I get rid of them??

Leave them. They will go away, squeezing leaves scars.

Bump. Please, anyone?? They are so ugly. Should I take him to my doctor? isn't 8 months too old for baby acne??
