Skin diseases of children
Children are not small adults. This is also evident in their skin. Baby skin in particular is much thinner, more sensitive and less protective than adult skin. It still lacks the natural acid mantle, and due to the reduced sebaceous and sweat gland function, it tends to be dry. Therefore, regular care and suitable children’s products are needed. Children’s skin is also protected differently from the sun. In the first year of life, babies should not be exposed to the sun at all, if possible. After that, sun protection products with physical or mineral light protection filters that do not penetrate the skin are suitable. Common skin problems in childhood include nappy dermatitis, neurodermatitis and infections such as genital warts, plantar warts or fungal infections.
