What Moisturizer can I use for my Baby’s Neonatal Acne?

The acne, which looks similar to acne in teenagers, resolves on its own without any specific treatment. The skin should be washed just once daily with a very gentle, unscented, creamy cleanser such as Cetaphil Baby®.

If the skin is very dry, adding a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free moisturizer or emollient, such as Aquafor®, Babyganics®, or a soothing protective ointment in a thin layer at bedtime can help. If Aquafor® is too greasy for daytime, then consider an unscented lotion specifically formulated for baby’s skin, such as Babyganics® eczema care skin protection cream. The key is to choose something fragrance- and dye-free and to avoid the eye area.
