Skin Infections & Rashes

Vaginitis in Children

Vaginitis is redness, soreness, or swelling in and around the vagina. It's common in girls of all ages, and usually can be treated at home.

Vitiligo

While vitiligo might make your child self-conscious, this skin condition is not medically dangerous. Kids with vitiligo are as healthy as other kids.

Warts

Many of us have had a wart somewhere on our bodies at some time. But other than being a nuisance, most warts are harmless.

Wound Healing and Care

How well a wound heals depends on where it is on the body and what caused it. Good home care is an important part of healing.
