Abstract: Dermatological problems manifesting as primary and secondary cutaneous complaints, constitute at least 30% of all outpatient visits to a pediatrician and 30% of all visits to dermatologists involve patients of pediatric age group. There is, however, a paucity of data about pediatric dermatoses in India, which has been reviewed to the extent possible. A brief account of common dermatological problems in India mainly infestations (pediculosis capitis, scabies) and infections (pyoderma, molluscum contagiosum, warts, herpes simplex infection, varicella, herpes zoster, tinea capitis and corporis, tinea versicolor, and candidiasis) has been given. At the end, common pediatric dermatological emergencies have been short-listed. Erythema multiforme and its variants and acrodermatitis enteropathica are discussed briefly.
