Skin disease can have an enormous impact on patients’ lives. When skin diseases affect children, there can be reductions on the child’s quality of life and that of the entire family. Moreover, the impact of skin disease can accumulate over time, affecting sleep, education, psychological well-being, and life-choices.
Atopic dermatitis and psoriasis are common inflammatory skin disease that can affect children, particularly commonly in the case of atopic dermatitis. These two skin disease can manifest in a host of different way, creating considerable complexity for treatment planning. Moreover, while most children with these conditions have limited disease that can be treated with topical treatments, topical treatments can be time consuming, messy and, to parents, scary, leading to poor adherence.
This issue of Children focuses on atopic dermatitis and psoriasis in children. The issue covers the treatment of common forms of these conditions as well as advancements in treatment that are providing life changing treatments for children with previously devastating disease. Moreover, the principles and approaches for improving adherence to treatment presented in this issue are widely applicable the care of children with any disease.
