Default Neck rash

An adolescent boy complains of a splotchy red rash on the nape of his neck, discovered when he had his head shaved for football season. The rash seems to get more prominent with exercise or emotion. His mother notes that he has had the rash since infancy, but that it became invisible as hair grew. He had a similar rash on his eyelids that resolved in the newborn period. Select the most likely diagnosis ?



Options:

1. Sebaceous nevi
2. Salmon patch
3. Neonatal acne
4. Seborrheic dermatitis
5. Milia

it's definitely 2) salmon patch. The ones on the face disappear but those on the head and neck remain. No Tx needed.
Milia are small white bodies on the palate, they too dnt need any Tx and spontaneously regress.
