Brief Answer:
Neonatal acne, no active treatment required

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to ask a doctor service
I have gone through your query and reviewed the attached photograph.
It seems to be neonatal acne which occurs due to hormonal changes in neonates.
It is a common phenomenon in many new born kids and doesn’t require any treatment.
It usually resolves in few months.
I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to answer any further queries.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
