It’s important to know about the different childhood skin problems that children commonly experience. Sometimes people don’t find out about these until it happens to their child. But, understanding about these skin problems that might happen will help lessen the fear, and help you be prepared and maybe even prevent some of them.

      1. Hives – These are raised itchy, red and white welts that are a sign of an allergy of some kind. They can be caused by skin contact or by something that was ingested or breathed though the air. Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint what caused the outbreak. It might require allergy tests and blood tests to help determine the cause. Usually they can be treated successfully with a normal dose of Benadryl.
      2. Heat Rash – This red rash that is often accompanied by small blisters is caused by hot, humid conditions combined with tight clothing that doesn’t breathe easily. Heat rash goes away when the skin cools off. You can treat it at home easily just by cooling the area. The only issue that can happen is if you catch a secondary skin infection, making the rash worse.
      3. Contact Dermatitis – This happens to the skin after it comes into contact with an irritant. It’s usually red, itchy and inflamed. Usually, there is nothing to do but try to relieve discomfort and keeping the area clean to prevent secondary infections. Also, it might be important to identify the cause to avoid it in the future.

      1. Ringworm – This circular red, scaly, itchy rash is caused by a type of fungus called dermatophytes. It’s not even a worm at all, but gets its name because it looks like a round worm under the skin. It can be spread by towels and other contact with the fungus. To treat ringworm, just wash with soap and water and then treat dried rash with antifungal cream per the directions on the package. Keep covered to avoid transmitting to others and spreading.
      2. Chickenpox – This is a very contagious disease that is becoming less common due to the creation and use of the chickenpox vaccine. Chickenpox is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, and creates a blistering rash that itches and also sometimes causing fatigue and fever. Treatment consists of using something to relieve itching like chamomile lotion and treating other systems such as fever or sore throat. While usually mild, chickenpox can be very serious for those who are immune compromised. It is recommended that everyone get the vaccine.
      3. Eczema – This is just an itchy rash that looks like dry patches of skin. It can easily be treated with creams and lotions. Many times if you treat the underlying condition such as allergies, the symptoms go away.

Don’t allow these childhood skin conditions to frighten you. It’s a little scary at first learning about them but now you know about them there’s no need to panic if you see signs of one of these skin problems in your child. Thankfully, the most dangerous skin conditions have vaccines now.
