There is no need for your child’s skin disease to cause unnecessary suffering. Get in touch and let our paediatric dermatologists do the rest.
There are many different conditions found in children that are not found in adults and many that are. Treatments might vary depending on the age of a patient so seeing an expert in children’s skin disease is important.
Common conditions that we see in children include scabies, eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, acne, warts, molluscum and birthmarks.
Each pediatric skin condition is different, as are its causes, symptoms and treatments.
Eczema is the most common skin condition seen in children and it can appear from a very young age. It can be caused by an irritant to the skin such as a washing powder, animal fur or fabrics so you can try avoiding products with strong fragrances or materials such as wool and nylon. If your child’s eczema doesn’t improve, a consultant dermatologist will be able to offer a treatment plan.
Rashes are very common in children and are a characteristic of many paediatric skin conditions. Most are harmless and will disappear without the need for any treatment so aren’t usually a cause for concern, however if your child seems unwell and the rash persists, it is best to see a doctor.
Lots of skin conditions seen in children, including warts, verrucae, molluscum and chicken pox are contagious and often passed on through contact with another infected child. It is important your child’s skin condition is quickly diagnosed so contact with other children in settings such as school or nursery are avoided.
