Paediatric dermatologists treat a wide variety of paediatric skin conditions using the latest available treatment methods. Paediatric dermatologists treat children from birth through adolescence. Children are not just small adults. They are not always able to say what is bothering them. They cannot always answer medical questions or be patient and helpful during a medical exam. Paediatric dermatologists know how to examine and treat children in a way that puts them at ease, in kid-friendly offices using medical equipment designed for children.
With their specialized training and experience, paediatric dermatologists know what’s normal growth and development in a child, and when to worry. Many childhood medical disorders, such as infantile hemangioma blood vessel growths, are not seen in adults. Common conditions, such as psoriasis, may have unique symptoms in children. Paediatric dermatologists are experts in the correct diagnosis and management of childhood skin diseases, including proper paediatric medication management.
