    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Hi mom6bw and Welcome -

    Here is a slideshow, Childhood Skin Problems , which may be helpful.

    Please contact her pediatrician or a dermatologist to have these areas evaluated. Unfortunately, without an exam it is impossible to guess what's going on over the internet.

    Regarding the poll question - Please see a doctor to have this checked out. In the meantime, our Symptom Checker may be able to offer you more information.

    Please keep us posted and let us know what you find out.

    Hoping you find answers soon,
    Elizabeth
