milia

Pearly white papules on the cheeks, nose and chin of newborns, which correspond to superficial inclusion cysts filled with keratinaceous debris. Irritation of the skin by sheets or clothing may cause mild reddening around the papule, but the central portion remains white. As the surface of the papule wears away the trapped keratin is lost and the papule disappears spontaneously, usually shortly after birth. Similar cystic structures seen on the gums and soft palate of newborns are called Epstein's pearls; they too disappear spontaneously. Irritated milia have been incorrectly called "baby acne".
