newborn skin peeling and has rash on forehead is it normal?

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This is normal in newborn babies who are born after the expected date. This is known as a post mature baby. If your baby was not born after the expected date and was born either early or at the expected date then peeling skin can be a sign of an infection and your baby should be seen by the paediatrician.
