The skin of a term newborn differs both from preterm skin and that of an adult, and there is currently little consensus on the proper use of emollients in this population. The focus of most published literature is on preterm skin and the use of bathing products, with limited information regarding emollient use. Intact skin is the first line of defense against infection, allergens, and dehydration, and dry and compromised skin puts the infant at greater risk of harm from the aforementioned complications. Emollients are part of the front-line treatment for atopic dermatitis (AD), and, with the incidence of AD on the rise, it is imperative that further research be conducted to provide a guide for clinical practice.
