Miliaria cristalina en tórax y brazo

La miliaria cristalina se produce cuando el sudor es retenido en los poros de la piel, formando diminutas ampollas transparentes que se rompen con facilidad. No hay inflamación asociada, por lo tanto no se presenta enrojecimiento ni debajo ni alrededor de las ampollas. Esta condición ocurre a menudo en los recién nacidos y puede cubrir un área extensa del cuerpo.
