Pediatric Dermatology: Clinical Pearls


James Treat, MD

3 points to remember about pediatric dermatology:

  • It may be possible to prevent atopic dermatitis with emolliation started before 3 weeks of age
  • Excess Hair around congenital scalp lesions may indicate ectopic brain tissue
  • Topical timolol can be very effective for early superficial hemangiomas.
