Our skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. When melanin-producing cells in our body become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production and our skin color. In this session, we will discuss common skin pigment conditions in children. We will also review the available therapeutic approaches to these conditions, including their safety and how well they work. Lastly, we will review the role of multidisciplinary care in caring for children’s skin.
