Neonatal acne based on maternal lipidomic profiling prediction.

Neonatal acne is a self-limiting hereditary disease with approximate 20% incidence rate and unclear mechanism that usually occurs in the first 6 weeks after birth. But there were no US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved guidelines for the treatment of neonatal acne. Though the etiology of neonatal acne is still unclear, there are four main speculated factors: First, newborns affected by the higher maternal androgen through the placenta; Second, more androgen is secreted by the larger reticular structure of the adrenal gland during the neonatal period, Third, the colonization of Malassezia and the Forth, family history is also important. Most of the causes are related to changes in lipid composition in skin surface. Therefore facial lipids of the volunteers were analyzed in the paper.
