Anything that makes children “different” from other kids – such as eczema, warts, acne, or moles – can also make them miserable. Fortunately, Derick Dermatology is staffed with practitioners who specialize in pediatric dermatology and love nothing more than helping kids heal so that they can feel good about themselves.
Common Pediatric Concerns
There are a number of childhood dermatological issues that affect your children and can be treated at Derick Dermatology.
Eczema is characterized by itchy, flaky skin and can affect babies, kids, and adults alike. Cleaning the affected areas and avoiding irritants are key in finding relief, but a dermatologist can prescribe treatments to minimize or eliminate future outbreaks.
Warts are a common childhood malady that your kids might outgrow, but until then, there are multiple ways to remove them. Depending on the needs of your child, a dermatologist will determine which method – freezing, injections, or topical medications – work best.
Acne is a big deal – no matter what your age. It affects babies, children, teenagers, and adults but can usually be prevented and treated. If you notice that your child is experiencing flare-ups, contact Derick Dermatology before the acne results in scarring.
Moles in children are not likely a medical issue but can make kids self-conscious. All of the practitioners at Derick Dermatology are skilled at mole removal, regardless of why they are a concern.
