What's the best way to get rid of baby acne? Can I use a gentle medicated cream?

Simply wash your baby's face with mild baby soap and water once a day and gently pat it dry. Have patience. Baby's acne usually doesn't bother them so try not to let it bother you. Do not use over-the-counter acne medicines. Do not scrub, baby acne is not caused by dirt. In face too much washing can further irritate their skin. Do not put oily lotions on their skin. These can make it worse. Some parents report that certain non-oily creams have helped their acne. If you try one, monitor how it affects baby's skin and be prepared to stop using if it makes it worse.
