It resolves in a few weeks to months, and occasionally is severe enough to require treatment with agents such as tretinoin or benzoyl peroxide. Neonatal herpes infection can occur in 3-day-old infants, but the clinical scenario is of a healthy child; children with neonatal herpes are usually ill. Milia are benign, tiny white bumps on the nose. Seborrheic dermatitis is a 42 Pediatrics weepy rash that can be found on the face or on the scalp (cradle cap); it is not usually found at 3 days of age but rather later in infancy.

Time-out would be ineffective, because these children usually have dysfunctional anal sphincters and little control over the problem; they do not know they are soiling their clothes until it is too late.
