Pediatric dermatology is dermatological care for children of all ages, from infants to teenagers. Like adults, children may develop skin, nail, and hair conditions that cause appearance changes, discomfort, and other issues.
Wellskin Dermatology & Aesthetic Clinic offers personalized care for children, from evaluation and diagnosis to treatment and skin condition management.
The pediatric dermatology specialists at Wellskin Dermatology & Aesthetic Clinic diagnose and treat a full range of skin conditions in children, including:
The team also treats nail and hair disorders in children to cover the full spectrum of pediatric dermatological needs.
Some issues tend to fade quickly, like bug bites. But, other issues are more persistent and could represent a serious problem requiring attention. Watch your child for issues, such as:
If your child has any new symptoms or signs that concern you — even if the problem is sporadic and not currently obvious — contact Wellskin Dermatology & Aesthetic Clinic to arrange an evaluation soon.
The team expertly evaluates your child's condition with a gentle physical exam and a complete review of their symptoms.
They understand that some kids may have difficulty in communicating their symptoms, so Wellskin Dermatology & Aesthetic Clinic works closely with you to better understand your child's situation and needs.
In some cases, your child might need some tests. Testing is generally noninvasive and easy, like a quick swab or skin scraping to collect a few cells for analysis.
The Wellskin Dermatology & Aesthetic Clinic team may recommend a few different treatments to ease your child's symptoms and prevent lasting issues.
That may include lifestyle changes, such as avoiding triggers, changing soaps and detergents, lukewarm baths, and other situation-specific changes. Your child may need topical treatments, like ointments, creams, or oral medications, like antibiotics.
In certain instances, such as moles that cause intense irritation, the team may recommend an in-office mole removal procedure.
