Given that the skin is the largest organ of the human body, there are several conditions that can affect children and adolescents. The skin protects us from microbes and the elements, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. Some skin conditions can be minor and easily resolved, others, require more extensive intervention depending on their severity.
