Many of the dermatologic conditions for which children seek medical attention are caused by infectious organisms. Several medications have recently become available or are on the horizon for the treatment of pediatric skin infections and infestations. Treatment of tinea capitis with fluconazole, itraconazole, and terbinafine, antibiotic therapy for staphylococcal skin infections, cidofovir for the treatment of verrucae vulgaris and molluscum contagiosum and ivermectin for scabies and head lice are discussed.
