Watching your child deal with the symptoms of a skin condition or rash can make you feel helpless. If your child is repeatedly scratching his or her skin, dealing with flakey skin or a rash can be signs of a serious pediatric skin condition. Some parents choose to diagnose and treat these issues themselves, but visiting a dermatologist for pediatric skin diseases is much more effective.
Children’s skin problems can begin at birth and continue as they grow, from diaper rash to acne and other conditions. Seeking treatment from a dermatologist who understands pediatric skin conditions can give children the gentle care they deserve. Diagnosing a skin condition at its onset can help better manage its symptoms as the child gets older.
Some of the most common pediatric skin conditions are atopic dermatitis, diaper dermatitis (diaper rash), warts, and acne. These can occur from childbirth through adolescence and can cause pain, itching, rash and other uncomfortable symptoms. While not all skin conditions can be cured, they can be managed – and we can help.
At Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center in Windermere, we treat patients of all ages – including children. Our medical staff is committed to providing safe, comfortable, and effective treatments for even the youngest, most delicate skin. Contact us today to find out how we can help your child find relief from pediatric skin conditions.
We work to uncover the causes of pediatric skin conditions rather than just trying to treat the symptoms. Treating the cause can help your child find relief. If the condition is not curable, we will work with you and your child to determine triggers for flare-ups. By understanding what aggravates the condition, we can help you manage its long-term symptoms.
At home, your children may be having a reaction to a certain ingredient in the products you’re using. This could cause a rash, breakouts, or other skin conditions. Not being aware of the allergy will only make things worse. Let our team help you and your child. We can provide treatment options designed for young, fragile skin that will both ease the symptoms and help with underlying causes.
Parents, if you are concerned about your child’s skin or notice something that requires treatment from a dermatologist, contact Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center today to schedule an appointment for your child. We’ll help your child get the relief he needs, so he can get back to the business of growing up happy and healthy.
