Newborn acne, otherwise known as acne neonatorum, usually occurs at birth or shortly
thereafter. It affects mostly boys and usually appears as comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and some pimples on the cheeks and forehead.

Newborn acne is thought to arise from the effects of the mother's hormones, specifically the androgens.

This type of acne resolves on its own and there is usually no need for treatment. More severe cases may be treated with topical antibiotics, most commonly erythromycin.
