No treatment needed for infant acne

(HealthDayNews) -- If your infant is only a month old and has already broken out in acne, don't panic. According to St. Louis Children's Hospital, infant acne is merely how the skin responds as your newborn's hormones adapt to life outside the womb.

There's no need to treat it, other than to keep your baby's skin clean. The condition should clear up in a few weeks.

And don't think that your child's acne is a harbinger of an acne-ridden adolescence. There is no link between the two.
