Hi doctor,

Our newborn boy is now 10 days old. He drinks soy formula milk because he is allergic to milk. Today, he started having this rash on his chin (photo attached). He wears gloves but likes to touch his chin. What can we do?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the photo of the rash that you have sent (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • As it is present only on the chin, it is less likely to be an allergic rash, which in contrast will be on the entire body.
  • This rash looks more so like a type of milia. It will disappear in a month mostly.
  • However, if this rash increases or stays the same even after a month or two, then we will have to think of the other causes after a detailed physical examination. Mostly this rash should go away.
