White-head like pimples Rss

Hi,
My son Jason is now 3 weeks old and he is having an outbreak of white-head like pimples all over his face. Does anyone know what's the cause of this? Is this casued by the breast milk? If the nursing mum is having constipation problem, will this affect the quality of her breast milk? Also, I would like to know if there's any lotion to apply to rectify his skin condition. Thanks for any replies in advance.

Hi

Jackson got those as well when he was around 3 weeks. I went to my dr about it and he just said that it was a milk rash and i had nothing to worry about. They cleared up after about 2 or 3 weeks.

Jimmy had a few of these, they came and went and I didn't put anything on them. I think they are normal for babies to get.

They are apparently called milk rash are are hormone related and totally normal.

They should totally disappear by 3 months without any treatment needed.

I think that pretty much all babies get them.
