Juvenile palmar dermatitis acquired at swimming pools is a friction dermatosis, typical of childhood, caused by the continuous rubbing of the wet skin of the palms of the hands, and occasionally of the soles of the feet, with the rough surfaces of the pools. It is possible that this dermatosis is relatively frequent but, nevertheless, there are very few cases described in the literature so that it is often unknown and probably underdiagnosed. Therefore, two cases of said entity that affect the same family are reported.
