Conditions in Babies & Young Children In 2002 we developed a skin education program for Maternal and Child Health Nurses which was distributed to all Victorian Maternal and Child Health Centres. The program comprises a resource folder for nurses which contains:

* information for nurses about common skin conditions, along with photographs of the conditions; and

* information sheets for carers.

The information sheets for carers can be found using the links provided. These explain the nature of the skin and the common conditions that can occur, what can be done about them, as well as where they can seek advice.
