Neonatal acne is a benign, acne-like rash occurring in the first 30 days of a newborn’s life and is correlated to sebaceous glands hyperplasia.
From a clinical perspective, comedones, pustules and papules appear, typically in the areas of the face, the back and the chest.
Very often, neonatal acne is a precursor of adult acne.
Depending on the case, the Dermatologist may assess the problem and give instructions that will help both the baby and the parents.
