Children’s skin is very tender. The dermatosis of young, immature and tender skin often requires a specialized expertise to treat. Many genetic diseases present first with skin manifestations, hence it’s very important that they are diagnosed correctly at the right age. This helps parents and later the child for managing the disease well. Our pediatric dermatologists specialize in common skin, hair and nail disorders, as well as complex genetic and infectious dermatologic complications.
We provide clinical evaluation, diagnostic biopsies and advanced therapies when needed. Children with vascular or pigmented lesions may also be offered treatment with the latest laser technology, either in our department or in a specially designated operating room.
