The photographs below show skin diseases that commonly affect the faces of children. The skin on the face is prone to spreading diseases such as the rash associated with poison ivy or the circular, red rash associated with the fungal disease ringworm (tinea faciale). Blackheads and inflamed pimples of acne are commonly found on the face as well. Rashes that can be seen all over the body, including the dry, itchy, red rash of dermatitis, or the thick, scaly rash of psoriasis, may occur on the skin of the face as well. Tiny white bumps called milia may be seen on the face, especially around the nose area. Larger white bumps associated with a virus (called molluscum contagiosum) can be present. These must be distinguished from warts and moles, which are other common conditions on the face. To learn more, click an image below.
