By far, I prefer
The Color Textbook of Pediatric Dermatology by Weston
The problem with Hurwitz, aside from being a little too academic (okay, a
lot) is that you need to know what you are looking at before you can look
it up. That is actually the problem with many dermatology books. It drives
me crazy. If I knew what the rash was, I wouldn't need the book !!
Weston has nice lists of rashes by age and type and as long as you can
describe the rash, you are able to get some guidance as to what it might
be. In addition, while it has good information, it is not as detailed as
Hurwitz. It might be the Tintinalli of pediatric derm compared with the
Rosen (Hurwitz) of pediatric derm.
Which reminds me of a comment I heard years ago by one of my colleagues.
There are two types of rashes: those that you know and those that you don't
-- and no amount of thinking will change one to the other.
