Childhood Skin Diseases
Skin disorders are common in children. Children can experience many of the same skin conditions as adults. Infants and toddlers are also at risk for diaper-related skin problems. Since children have more frequent exposure to other children and germs, they may also develop skin disorders that rarely occur in adults.
Common childhood skin disorders include:
- diaper rash
- seborrheic dermatitis
- fifth disease
- rashes from bacterial or fungal infections
- rashes from allergic reactions
