Neonatal Acne

Neonatal acne is also known as Neonatal cephalic pustulosis. It is a pustular eruption on the head and neck of newborns with onset around third weeks of age. There is some association with Malassezia colonization. Most of the times it resolves spontaneously without scarring in a few months but may be treated with topical azole antifungal preparations or mild topical steroids to fasten clearance.
