The first four weeks of life are known as the neonatal period. It is a phase of adaptation during which a variety of skin abnormalities can develop, ranging from brief lesions generated by physiological reactions to transient diseases and some markers of severe pathologies. The majority of these characteristics, such as lanugo, erythema of the skin, and vernix caseosa, are typical of newborn skin. Over time, some of our understanding of the anatomical and physiological aspects of newborn skin has changed.
Dermatologists for children treat them from birth to adolescence. Pediatric dermatologists use the most up-to-date treatment approaches to address a wide range of skin disorders in children. Psoriasis, for example, has its own set of symptoms in children. They know how to evaluate and treat children in a way that makes them feel comfortable, in kid-friendly offices with kid-friendly medical equipment.
The objective of this session is to help neonatal and pediatric medical practitioners better understand how to diagnose and treat neonatal skin disorders.
