Baby Acne Gone Bad


Poor little baby Alvin. In person his face looked so much worse. I kept taking pictures to try and capture how bad it looked, but it never looked as bad in the picture. He has had a little baby acne for the past 2 weeks under his chin and this weekend it went way wrong. Saturday morning i could tell some dry parts on his chin were ready to peel off and others not so ready. i also noticed his cheeks starting to get worse acne. by the afternoon from being hot and in his carseat it had irritated it and being too moist a lot of it started to break open and just start to ooze like crazy. then Alvin kept hitting it with his hands and making a lot more of it open up. he was oozing so bad his whole shirt around the neck was yellow with pus. I know that sounds so gross, but it was. I could barely look at him or hold him. We took him to the dr. to make sure it wasn't infected or some weird skin disease, but it was just a bad case of acne. He is so much better now. it is almost gone just 2 days later, but when it was like these pictures it seemed like my little boy would never be the same. I was so sad for him.

I was pumping and giving him bottles because the pus would get all over my arm if I nursed him. Gross huh.
