    Benign skin disease with pustules in the newborn.
    An Bras Dermatol 2016 Apr;91(2):124-34
    Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.
    The neonatal period comprises the first four weeks of life. It is a period of adaptation where the skin often presents several changes: transient lesions, resulting from a physiological response, others as a consequence of transient diseases and some as markers of severe disorders. The presence of pustules in the skin of the newborn is always a reason for the family and for the assisting doctor to be worried, since the newborn is especially vulnerable to bacterial, viral or fungal infection.

    Neonatal pustular dermatosis: an overview.
    Indian J Dermatol 2015 Mar-Apr;60(2):211
    Department of Skin and VD, PGIMS, Rohtak, Haryana, India.
    Neonatal pustular eruption is a group of disorders characterized by various forms of pustulosis seen in first 4 weeks of life. Its presentation is often similar with some subtle differences, which can be further established by few simple laboratory aids, to arrive at a definite diagnosis. Given their ubiquitous presentation, it is sometimes difficult to differentiate among self-limiting, noninfectious, pustular dermatosis such as erythema toxicum neonatorum, transient neonatal pustular melanosis, miliaria pustulosa, etc. Read More
