The skin, hair and nails are three of the five cardinal features of what define an ectodermal dysplasia. Each can develop and function abnormally in different ways depending upon the type of ectodermal dysplasia it is.
This webinar will address what many of those symptoms can be and at what ages. It will cover dry skin, eczema, skin erosion, lesions, papillomas, palmoplantar keratosis, hyperpigmentation, and sebaceous hyperplasia and their treatments.
Plus, discover practical tips and products to manage the various hair and nail abnormalities. In this interactive webinar, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
