I'm so scared...

My youngest daughter is one month old. She has infant acne.

I have experienced this with my two year old son. At one month old he had acne, at two months he had eczema, after a few more months he was diagnosed with asthma which led us down the allergy road. When he was one year old we discovered he had peanut allergy.

I also have a 5 year old that never had baby acne and has NO allergies.

I'm so scared that my new baby will also have allergies. What do you think?
Did your PA have infant acne?

My PA Son did have baby Acne the first few months. Then mild eczema. That is interesting, I have never put acne and PA together. I know a Lot of babies get acne though. I will be interested to see what others post. Wishing the best for you and your family. Take Care.

Both of my little guys had HORRIBLE baby acne, then mild eczema. Neither has ever had asthma. 3 yo has PA. 6 mo had milk/soy protien intol, but is tolerating milk protien now...hoping that's the end of food issues with him!

My PA son went straight to eczema at 6 weeks. No warning, just one day he had massive eczema. My other child did have acne but has no food allergies.
I'm sure there could be a connection with FA & acne but I don't think it is always the case.
Hope that makes you feel a little better! :)
