    Default infant acne flaring

    hello everyone
    i thought my baby's acne was the usual hormonal transfer. but this morning her chin looks like its breaking out into a type of sore. like the skin is peeling?
    did your child's acne get worse than bumps and rashes?

    If the rash looks unusual to you, I would suggest a call to baby's doctor in order to rule out anything extraordinary.

    Thank you Jolie
    Because I noticed too that its on her earlobes.
    I haven't read where the acne appears on ear lobes.

    how old is baby?
    I agree if it doesn't seam normal give your doctor a call.
    some babies have trouble with detergent and you have to use gentile soap or no soap with them.
    heres a good link from dr sears

    My LO had infant acne then all of the sudden it seemed to get worse, had it on his earlobes and behind his ears... peeling, etc. Anyways it turned out to be eczema- What you are describing sounds worthy of a trip to the pedi because if it is eczema or something aside from acne it could be itchy to your baby!
