This page provides information and images about medical concerns affecting the male infant's forehead. The forehead has thin, delicate skin, like that on the rest of a baby's face, so it is a frequent site of infection and irritation. Medical conditions commonly affecting the forehead include ringworm (tinea faciale), eczema, birthmarks, cradle cap (seborrheic dermatitis), milia, warts, and molluscum contagiosum.
