Health information for skin complaints specific to children is found on the forehead on this page. Since the forehead is an open area of skin on the face, it is susceptible to rashes that have spread from other areas of the body and face. Such conditions include acne breakouts and molluscum contagiosum. Since the forehead is close to the scalp, it can be affected by dry, flaky skin caused by dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis). Other conditions sometimes found on the forehead of children include warts and moles, as well as lighter areas of skin, known as vitiligo.
