We enjoy caring for infants, toddlers and children of all ages. Children’s skin is often more delicate and sensitive, requiring special attention. Trained in pediatric dermatology, we are very experienced with the skin issues affecting this age group and how to provide the best care.
We do what we can to avoid unnecessary discomfort by using numbing creams and sprays, and especially tiny needles when needed.
We will gladly collaborate with your child’s pediatrician, and refer to pediatric plastic surgeons when appropriate.
A dermatology visit is often a great time to get your child’s skin checked, and to get them started on a good path towards healthy skin for the rest of their lives. Also, we often take clinical photos of moles to help us monitor them over time.
The more common things we see children for are
Warts & Molluscum
