Gentle, Expert Children’s Skin Care

pediatric dermatologyPediatric dermatologists know that a child’s skin is significantly different from that of adults, and their lifestyles and habits are very different as well.  As a result, the skin conditions commonly seen in pediatric dermatology are different from those commonly seen in adults.  Children are especially susceptible to infections.  Most infections seen in pediatric dermatology are easily treatable, with proper techniques.  A child’s delicate skin is also more susceptible to the outside world.  Childhood rashes such as “eczema” and diaper rash are largely treatable and even preventable, with the right kind of instruction.  If your child has a skin condition, let us show you how our years of training and experience in pediatric dermatology can make the difference. Read more

Expert Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention of Skin Rashes

rashesRashes are a symptom of the modern age.  Our skin is exposed to myriad external substances, both natural and synthetic, which can cause rashes.  And the skin is a window on the internal workings of the body, producing rashes in a variety of illnesses.  An accurate diagnosis is essential, but many patients are told they have “eczema”, which is not a single diagnosis, but rather a broad group of skin diseases.  Skin biopsies of rashes often also fail to narrow down the possibilities.  Our extensive clinical experience with rashes, and unique and comprehensive array of skin allergy testing can often find a cause, and a solution, for patients who thought they had to live with their “eczema”.  It’s one way we practice preventive medicine. Read more
