Your baby’s sensitive skin needs special care. A baby’s skin is soft and delicate, unlike the skin of an adult. The fragile skin of a baby is just beginning to develop when it is faced with many of the same harmful substances that adults face on a daily basis. This newly born skin is especially prone to rashes and different types of skin conditions.
It can be scary for first-time parents to see an unfamiliar skin rash and not be able to recognize what the problem may be. When your baby can’t tell you what is wrong, let the Infant Skin Resource Center be your guide to healthy baby skin. Here you can learn about common baby skin conditions and how to identify more serious problems of the skin.
