    Doc said this clears on its own? Looks sore and not very nice. Doesn't seem to bother her thou.
    How low did it take for ur lo's to clear up? X

    I think most babies get that. It looks so much worse than it is. I think my baby's spots cleared by around 6 weeks max. Then the cradle cap set in on her eyebrows. That cleared, then more cradle cap set in on her head!
    Poor little things. It doesn't bother then so don't worry, just make sure you don't try and pick any of those spots as tempting as it may be!xxx

    My LO has these little spots, not as bad tho just a few here and there. Not sure how long they last, i don't remember my eldest ever getting them :/

    I would say just keep her face clean and dry, wash using plain water and they should disappear soon. Like above said, i don't think they bother LO's, but they don't half look sore :(

    LO had these, lasted a couple of weeks. Do you breastfeed? I put breast milk on LOs after every feed which brought the redness down.x

    H was covered from head to toe in this rash and it didn't start to clear up till I used olive oil. I didn't start using it till about 5 weeks so he had it for a while. X
