Displayed below are pictures of skin diseases that are common on the face of children. Rashes that can be seen all over the body, including the dry, itchy, red rash of dermatides or the thick, scaly rash of psoriasis, may occur on the facial skin too. Tiny white bumps called milia may be seen on the face. Larger white bumps associated with a virus (called molluscum contagiosum) can be present as well. These bumps can be distinguished from warts and moles, which are other common conditions found on the face. The skin on the face is prone to contagious diseases such as the rash associated with poison ivy or the circular, red rash typical of ringworm (a fungal disease, formally known as tinea faciale when on the face). Blackheads and inflamed acne pimples are commonly found on the faces of children as well. To learn who is at risk for these conditions as well as treatment your child's physician might prescribe, click an image below.
