Brief Summary:
Erythema Toxicum Neonatorum (ETN) is a common skin finding that affects healthy full-term babies. Several authors have commented on the possible relationship between ETN and the development of atopic conditions, such as atopic dermatitis or respiratory disease later in life. There is a paucity of research addressing this issue.
