What is Paediatric Dermatology?

Paediatric dermatology helps to treat skin conditions often found in children, such as acropustulosis and granuloma annulare. The conditions found in children can also be found in adults, however the effects these skin conditions can have on younger children and teenagers can be very different and in most cases, be very severe.

Benefits of Paediatric Dermatology

Children can benefit significantly from paediatric dermatology treatments as they can help to treat various skin conditions early to stop them from getting worse and causing further complications in children. Allowing specialist infant dermatologists to intervene within the early stages of diagnosis is crucial, so we advise consulting with a paediatric dermatologist as soon as possible if there are any early signs of skin conditions within your children.

This can prevent future scarring and helps to protect the condition of your child’s skin and make the condition less irritable.

What skin conditions can be treated?

Our expert paediatric dermatologists in London can treat a range of skin conditions found within children, such as:

  • Granuloma annulare – a skin condition where small raised bumps form a ring with a regular or sunken centre that can be caused by animal or insect bites.
  • Contact dermatitis – A rash that can be caused by contact with a substance in which the individual has an allergic reaction to, and can be very uncomfortable.
  • Juvenile plantar dermatosis – a chronic skin condition that affects the feet of children, causing dry skin around the feet.
  • Psoriasis – a skin condition that affects the skin through causing red, flaky patches with silvery scales.
  • Pompholyx – a type of eczema that causes itchy blisters to appear on the hands and feet.
  • Acropustulosis – a skin condition that causes itchy blisters and pustules on the palms of hands and soles of feet within children, often younger than three years of age.
  • Pitted keratolysis – caused by bacteria, this skin condition causes small holes to appear on the top layer of your skin, commonly affecting the soles of feet, but can also affect your hands.
  • Gianotti-Crosti – a rare skin condition that causes a rash to appear across childrens’ legs and arms.
  • Infantile papular acrodermatitis – symptoms of this skin condition includes a rash on the arms and legs that isn’t often itchy, along with bumps that appear to form in a line.
