Both mother and child may experience numerous skin related challenges in the early years. Everyone loves the the “pregnancy glow” new mothers have that comes from the increased volume of blood to the cheeks and the increased secretions of the oil glands.
However, not all skin changes mothers may experience are so welcome. Brownish or yellowish patches called chloasma (also dubbed the mask of pregnancy) can appear anywhere on the face. Acne, spider veins and skin tags may also appear for the first time. Children may face their own set of dermatological challenges such as allergies, eczema and rashes.
