Is It Baby Acne, Cradle Crap or Heat Rash ?

There are several conditions baby skin irritation and there are two types of acne. Each has the handling and treatment of different recommendations. So it's good to know the symptoms of each.

Cradle Crap

As neonatal acne, cradle crap and seborrheic dermatitis are related to hormonal changes associated with pregnancy, which causes the sebaceous glands to go into overdrive. Milk is Crap:
  •  Crusty, scaly, red patches on baby's scalp
  •  Caused by overactive sebaceous glands (these produce the skin's oil)
  •  There can also redness in the crease of the baby's neck, armpits, and behind his ears
  •  When it is only on the scalp, it is cradle crap. When it spreads all over the face, and in the diaper area, it is called seborrheic dermatitis. You should contact your doctor to get a stronger shampoo or alternative treatment if this occurs.
Heat Rash

Heat rash can occur in the world, but babies are more vulnerable because their sweat glands are not fully developed. Therefore, they are less able to re-balance your body's core temperature. Heat rash is characterized by very small bumps on the skin, surrounded by a red zone. Heat rash 
  • It usually starts in areas of the body covered by clothing
  • This includes the trunk, groin and armpits
  • Can cause fever and heat exhaustion in severe cases
  • Hot and wetlands tend to be associated with more
  • You may feel prickly or tingling
Baby Acne

Like adult acne, baby acne is more common in boys than in girls. Unlike the later forms of acne, it is usually mild or moderate, and rarely severe.

It usually occurs on children's faces - usually the cheeks, but may extend to the chin and forehead. When this type of acne is mild to moderate, it is unlikely to lead to permanent scarring. However, if the acne is severe, scarring can occur that last into adulthood. These babies who develop severe acne vulgaris usually suffer from acne when they reach adult. Acne vulgaris is the most common type of acne people suffer.Neonatal acne can include features like regular acne pimples and blackheads and papules and pustules. The bumps have pus in them and look like small areas, the solid skin lifted. Pustules have pus in them, as the name suggests. The pustules are usually formed in the sweat glands and hair follicles. 

It is comprised of inflammatory cells and pus.When no comedones (whiteheads and blackheads), babies may have what is called neonatal cephalic pustulosis. This is the result of infection by a species of yeast known as Malassezia. There are a number of different species of this genus, but not yet established whether the different species cause diseases of the skin in particular. Malassezia yeasts can cause seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff, and neonatal cephalic pustulosis and a number of other conditions.

The truth now Neonatal cephalic pustulosis doesn't usually need treatment, though a topical antifungal cream can be applied.
