Hi, How is your baby? A newborn baby's skin is sensitive. Tiny white or yellow pearly bumps on nose, chin, and cheeks is called milia. This is common in newborns after the first several weeks of life. On the other hand, neonatal acne presents with small pimples or red bumps on face. This usually appears between 2 and 4 weeks of age usually on the cheeks and sometimes on the forehead, chin, and even the back. These small whiteheads might be surrounded by reddish skin and they can become more pronounced when your baby is hot or fussy or if his skin is irritated by saliva, spit-up milk, or fabric that's a little rough or that's been washed in strong detergent. If the irritation looks more scaly than pimply your baby may have another condition, such as cradle cap or eczema. Baby acne usually clears up within a few weeks. If it persists, have this evaluated by your doctor for proper management.Direct clinical examination is essential. Take care and regards.
