Other Newborn Rashes
Cutis marmorata is a lacelike (reticulated) pattern of erythema that appears when the newborn is exposed to cold.
Normally the skin desquamates imperceptibly. However, desquamation in a postmature neonate is very common.
Erythema toxicum neonatorum
Erythema toxicum neonatorum (ETN) is a very common, benign, self-limited eruption with unknown etiology occurring primarily in healthy newborns in the early neonatal period. ETN is characterized by macular erythema, papules, vesicles and pustules, and it resolves without permanent sequelae.
