Neonatal Acne

more about Neonatal Acne


  • Neonatal acne is a condition in newborn babies that leads to development of acne ("pimples") resembling the acne experienced by teenagers.

  • Red bumps and irritated skin over the face, neck, and upper back
  • Lack of fever or irritability in the infant

  • Neonatal acne is caused by the passage of maternal hormones across the placenta during pregnancy.  When infants are born, these hormones persist for a short time, and their bodies "think" they are entering puberty.

  • Diagnosis is made by physical examination; no laboratory tests are necessary.
  • Culture might grow the bacteria responsible for the infection

  • No treatment is necessary for neonatal acne.  As the mother's hormones are cleared from the baby's bloodstream, the acne will disappear.  Neonatal acne does not leave scars or other marks after it resolves.
