Abstract

THAT THERE has been a great deal of interest in recent years in the problem of the prevention and treatment of the various types of rashes which appear in newborn infants is amply attested to by the number of articles appearing in the pediatric journals during the past 30 years discussing the effectiveness of this or that preparation in this field. In a clinical study of various methods used for the prevention of impetigo neonatorum published in 1944,1 the literature to that date was reviewed and a study made over a seven-year period of the results with three separate methods of skin care, i. e., (1) sterilized cottonseed oil, (2) the "no bath technique" as originally recommended by Bean and Smith in 1936, and (3) the "no bath technique" plus the use of a lotion containing a quaternary antiseptic, with an apparent advantage to the third method. Since that
