Question by angel l: My new born son has really dry skin and bumps on his forehead?
My son is a week and a half years old and his hands and feet are peeling. Also I noticed that he has little tiny rough bumps on his forehead. When I rub his head it starts to peel too. What is this and what can I do to get rid of it?
I noticed the bumps a few hours after his bath.
Answer by Lola
the skin will peel. the first skin that babies have when they come out of the womb is very thin and soft and will look ashy and eventually peel off. this is very normal. the bumps are probably baby acne. this is left over estrogen in the baby’s bloodstream that he got from you while in the womb. eventually the estrogen will work it’s way out of the body and the acne clears up around 8 weeks old or so. don’t use any acne medicines or harsh soap as his skin is very sensitive. just keep it clean with baby soap and it will clear up.
in female babies, some actually experience bleeding like a period in their first couple of weeks of life, from the estrogen hormones.
