Toxic erythema in the newborn is a very common skin symptom that resolves spontaneously within a couple of days. It is probably associated with the sudden transition from the warm aquatic life to dry air. Small yellowish papules are visible on an erythematous base. They may resemble papules seen in folliculitis, especially on the face. Besides the face, rash also often appears on the body and on the limbs. It is not associated with actual pustules or comedones as is infantile acne.
