1. Acne Neonatorum:

What Is It:

• A skin condition which affects newborns during the first month of their lives.
• It is marked by presence of lesions that resemble acne (pimples) which are mainly seen over the cheeks, chin and the forehead.

Cause:

Occurs due to hormonal stimulation of the sebaceous glands present in the skin.

Treatment:

• Since it is a self-limited condition,  it requires no treatment. The problem disappears usually once the infant completes three months of age and the effects of the mother’s hormones wane off.

• In mild cases, daily cleansing with soap and water is sufficient.

• In severe cases, however, mild keratolytic agents under medical supervision can be used.
