Answer

Most infants with granuloma gluteale infantum have a history of a preceding inflammatory skin condition in an area of seborrheic or candidal dermatitis or contact with a known irritant. [10, 11] These conditions have been treated with a variety of topical agents, including fluorinated corticosteroids. [12, 13]
