Pediatric Dermatology Q & A

What is pediatric dermatology?

Pediatric dermatology is a medical specialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions that affect children. Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches is a full-service dermatology practice that provides care for all ages, including infants, children, and adolescents. 

What conditions benefit from pediatric dermatology?

Though you may start out asking questions at your pediatrician’s office, most skin conditions that affect children benefit from a consultation with a pediatric dermatologist. 

Some of the most common pediatric skin conditions treated at Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches include:

Acne

Due to hormonal changes, many teens suffer from acne. Though there are effective over-the-counter treatments for acne, the pediatric dermatologists at Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches recommend a professional evaluation, so your teen gets the right treatment. At-home care may lead to acne scars.  

Warts

Warts, which the human papillomavirus (HPV) causes, are common in children. There are many treatment options available to remove your child’s warts to prevent scarring and spreading of the skin growths. 

Eczema

Eczema is a skin condition that causes red, inflamed, itchy skin. There are many types of eczema. Your provider at Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches diagnoses your child’s eczema to improve the skin condition and minimize symptoms. 

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that tends to run in families and causes thick patches of scaly skin. Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches offers innovative treatments to help your child gain control over their psoriasis.

Skin allergy testing

Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches offers skin allergy testing to identify the various allergens that may cause allergic skin reactions. 

Other common skin conditions the pediatric dermatologists treat include molluscum, fungal infections (athlete’s foot), and rosacea.
