As the caregiver of a recipient child, you may be familiar with the various skin issues that can arise post-transplant. These can include everything from rashes to full-blown infections. While they can be frustrating and uncomfortable, most of these problems can be managed with proper care. Here we will take a look at some of the most common skin issues (like eczema, rashes, and warts) to complicated skin issues (such as eosinophilic esophagitis (EOE) and skin cancer) related to transplants, and offer some tips on how to deal with them.
