• Recognize clinical features of common and distinct pediatric rashes
• Identify children who need to be instructed to seek care quickly for their skin problem.

“What is that??” is not only a common refrain among parents but also of primary health care providers when faced with a rash. Rashes and Eczema are one of the leading causes for office visits for children, where a confounding number of causes can be postulated. Join Pediatric Dermatologist, Dr. Wingfield Rehmus for this much needed session on identifying childhood skin diseases, how to describe them in morphological terms, discuss the range of topical preparations and medication used to manage them, identify pediatric dermatology emergencies, and discuss a range of solutions for atopic dermatitis/eczema.
