Exanthems in childhood occur quite often and are mostly related to harmless viral infections. They may present as macular, maculopapular, papular, urticarial or vesicular rashes. However there are other causes which include bacterial infections, drug reactions, autoimmune and auto-inflammatory diseases. In addition there are exanthems of unknown causes like Kawasaki disease. It is very important to differentiate exanthems of harmless nature from harmful life threatening exanthems. Recently new specific distinct exanthems like atypical hand foot mouth disease by Coxsackie virus A 6 and an exanthem in newborns by Parechovirus type 3 have been described. In addition there are new paraviral exanthems including eruptive pseudoangiomatosis and eruptive hypomelanosis.

The medical aesthetic industry has grown at an exponential rate in the past 10 years. In 2016 the industry stands at 7 billion dollars and according to Medical Insight Inc. the annual growth rate will soar at 12% each year reaching 12 billion dollars in 2019. With this impressive rampant growth rate and lucrative profits attached to it aesthetic medicine is not limited to dermatologists and plastic surgeons only; doctors from all fields of medicine have begin to assume the role of aesthetic injectors. To maintain the reputation of excellence for this new branch of medicine it is very important that every cosmetic injector preps him/herself painstakingly to nail every aspect of the treatment from aesthetic consultation to understanding the anatomy of face in order to deliver complication-free natural looking results.
