Pediatric Dermatology

The childhood skin is surprisingly resistant to various buffering agents thanks to the stratum corneum, which is the shell, in which lipids are incorporated into a matrix of keratin.

This layer of baby skin is fully developed in nascent newborns and that's why many children spend time with diapers without any intertrigo trace, despite the fact that the children's skin has undergone massive irritation from various excretions.

Pediatric atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory and genetically determined increased skin reactivity characterized by intense itching and skin dryness.

It may be associated with atopic asthma, rhinitis, conjunctivitis, urticaria and gastrointestinal disorders. It may occur at any age but it is more common in infants and children.

Molluscum contagiosum is a self-limiting viral skin infection caused by POX viruses. It appears quite often in children.
