my two month old has recently developed red bumps or pimples on her cheeks, forhead and behind her ears, does anyone have experience with this? Her doctor said it was skin irritation and to put eucerin lotion on it or hydrocortisone cream if it got worse but i'm wondering if there is another way to help her.
It could be baby acne or when the baby gets too hot, or it could be oil glads. I remember my son had it bad when he was a month I had to use an over the counter ointment I don't remember he is 7. Ask your pediatrician but I think cortizone cream is what I had to use.
