Baby acne


My son is going through baby acne. It’s starting to dry up and it peeling him new skin. My problem is i think it’s itchy because he’s constantly has his hands at his face rubbing it or rubbing his face on my shirt. He saw his doctor and he said basically the acne will go away. I’m barely sleeping because he falls asleep then wakes up clawing at his face and it’s irritating him he whining a bit. Anyone can help? I’m hours of sleep deprived and so is he.
