Paediatric dermatology

Peadiactirc dermatology consultants are specialist consultants for children with dermatological (skin) conditions.

What is paediatric dermatology?

Paediatric Dermatology deals with dermatological or skin problems in children.

How does paediatric dermatology work?

A Paediatric Dermatologist provides the following services for children and infants:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair and scalp conditions
  • Prescriptions for treatment of skin conditions
  • Medical and/or surgical treatment of skin conditions such as warts and other lesions of the skin 

What are the benefits?

Children with common dermatological conditions can benefit from the expertise of our nationally recognised physicians. Although these same complaints may manifest themselves in adults the treatment may differ considerably when dealing with a skin problem in childhood.

How safe is the treatment?

The treatment is especially adapted to suit a child's or adolescent's skin. With certain medication the dosage is dependent on the child's weight. It is therefore important that skin disease in children is treated by a dermatologist with expertise in this area.
