Pediatric Dermatology is not routine skin problems that occur in children but instead involves dermatological entities that encompass congenital abnormalities of skin development as well as entities that appear only in children or initiate in childhood. Pediatric dermatology incorporates the field of neonatology and birthmarks, genetic syndromes, cutaneous markers for internal disease, skin infections from impetigo to warts and fungus and Conditions such as Atopic Dermatitis (eczema of childhood). Atopic Dermatitis is more than just a common rash; it is a chronic rash involving relentless itching, scratching and skin infections that result in misery for the child and overwhelming stress on family dynamics. Therapy encompasses more than just prescriptions.
