Today, Dr. Vincent DeLeo talks to Dr. Candrice Heath about managing postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) in children with skin of color. Many inflammatory conditions commonly seen in childhood and adolescence can result in pigmentary changes in darker-skinned individuals. Beginning at 5:05, Dr. Heath outlines various treatment plans for some of these conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, acne, and arthropod bites, and shares some early prevention strategies to limit the development of new and worsening PIH in pediatric skin of color patients.
