Vesicular rashes in neonates are challenging in terms of diagnosis and management. Herpes infection is an important diagnostic consideration. We report two illustrative neonatal cases of herpesvirus infections with vesicular rashes. Such babies may be remarkably asymptomatic. A high index of suspicion leading to a prompt diagnosis, timely quarantine measures, and institution of antiviral treatment are pivotal for desirable outcomes.
