162215 - How to Treat quiz: Childhood psoriasis and dermatitis

  • : Online
Relevance to General Practice

Atopic dermatitis is a common, itchy, inflammatory skin condition, presenting in the first few years of life. Psoriasis presents most frequently in children as well defined, erythematous, symmetrical, scaly plaques. An infectious trigger such as a streptococcal tonsillitis will precipitate a sudden guttate flare. Children may at times have both an atopic and a psoriatic diathesis. These children will present initially with discoid eczema, later developing more typical psoriatic lesions when older. Dermatitis artefacta is not a true dermatitis but a self-inflicted skin condition. It is a cry for help and psychological intervention is crucial.
