A 5 1/2 month old male had vesiculopustular cutaneous lesions along with erythema, erosions, scaling and crusting particularly prominent in the peri - orificial areas for the last 1 month. He was the first child of his mother who had no sign of zinc deficiency. Serum zin level was normal in the mother, but low in the baby. Oral zinc therapy cured the baby. After weaning the baby was disease free even without oral zinc.
