Hi Akshita ! It could be neonatal acne. however, please do confirm the same from yr doc.. also do not scratch or rub on these boils . these might clear within a month or two on their own. . Also make sure clothes she wears are washed in gentle detergents and are not harsh on her skin. The very first cloth in direct contact with her skin should be soft cotton, so that it doens't cause any allergy. u can add 2-3 layers after that as per yr choice .

Hi Akshita there is nothing of that sort it is due to baby's first interaction with winters .. for this u may consult your doctor and they give ointment for this.. but don't take anything on your own . Ointment will help baby to get rid of these easily within 2-3 days

Helo Akshita my baby too had this problem. Dont wrap baby in too many layers. Make sure you wash baby's clothes properly and dont machine wash baby clothes with othets dress. Use some good brand baby detergent powder to wash baby clothes. You can clean baby face twice a day using warm water. Dont apply anything on her face like soap or baby wash. Just clean her face with warm water and apply a good moisturizer for your baby. Even in rare cases formula also may cause allergy in babies. If it is increasing better consult your pediatrician.
