    My LO has spots on her face. Is it ok and will they clear up on their own or should I do something? Here's some pics:

    Nothing to worry about hun just a touch of baby acne due to hormones. Alex had them only lasted about 3 weeks and they cleared up on their own. just don't pick or squeeze them as they could scar.

    J has a couple of patches of these too - my HV (not that I have an awful of faith in her right now) - told me to get some Cetraben Emollient Cream - which I did yesterday and we apply it to the spotty areas on his face / chest after each nappy change...she said it should clear up within week / 10 days? xxx

    Libby's are just clearing up now, didn't use anything just changed to wiping her face with cooked boiled water instead of tap.

    Yay! Thanks you lot :D
    I'm one of those people that see a spot and gotta pick it! I haven't picked hers though ofcourse as dont want her having scars but they are tempting lol. They sometimes are really red and sometimes just pale.
    Trying to get rid of her trapped wind at the moment :( she is in a lot of discomfort bless her. Xxx

    Our little girl has spots just like that. Midwife said it's a good sign that my milk has plenty of fat and because the baby system isn't mature yet it comes out as spots sometimes. Not sure if that is true, or just her way of making us not worry but it seems like it's nothing to worry about anyway. They have come and gone every few days. I have found wiping her face off a couple of times a day with cotton and warm water seems to help.

    Is that why the ones on the nose are called milk spots?
