Awwwww...poor bubba, that looks really sore! I'm just popping in to agree with the others and say to take her to the doctors. I'm a neonatal nurse, and this is NOT normal newborn acne. There are many things it could be, so best to go yet her checked. If its affecting her feeding, she could end up severely dehydrated.

I think you should take your baby to emergency ASAP. Then they can send it throug to the peadiatric department if it isn't something simple. If it has already caused feeding issues you shouldn't wait to see a gp about this. It is an infection that might need antibiotics ASAP as a minimum but it could be worse. I'd go to emergency.

Please let us know how you go when you get her checked out.

I agree, I think emergency is the place, she is so young, and any infection at that age can be dangerous. Not trying to scare you, but take her to ED -that is what they are there for

Both my babies had horrific baby acne that covered their whole faces. It didn't look like that and it didn't bother them at all as it wasn't painful or itchy... Just a bit unnattractive is all. I think you should go to either the gp or hospy. Hope your little one is okay and your not too freaked out by some of these responses. I freaked out when I read some of the things people think it is and im not even the mum. whatever it is I'm sure your little one will be okay. Take care xx

I agree with going to the ED. Better to be safe then sorry. You mentioned in another thread she has bumps on her bum too, are they like this?

Have you seen a doctor? Things like herpes or infections can be very worrying for little babies. Don't freak out, just go see a doctor asap. Otherwise if baby seems at all unwell, unsettled, or if she's not having wet nappies from feeding hurting so not feeding properly I'd be pretty inclined to go to emergency.
