Common skin conditions that we often see in children include eczema, skin rashes, scabies, allergies, psoriasis, vitiligo, warts, moles, molluscum and birthmarks.
WHAT CAUSES SKIN CONDITIONS IN CHILDREN?
Each pediatric skin condition is different, as are its causes, symptoms and treatments.
Eczema is the most common skin condition seen in children and it can appear from a very young age. It can be caused by an irritant to the skin such as a washing powder, animal fur or fabrics so you can try avoiding products with strong fragrances or materials such as wool and nylon. If your child’s eczema doesn’t improve, a consultant dermatologist will be able to offer a treatment plan.
Rashes are very common in children and are a characteristic of many paediatric skin conditions. Most are harmless and will disappear without the need for any treatment so aren’t usually a cause for concern, however if your child seems unwell and the rash persists, it is best to see a doctor.
Lots of skin conditions seen in children, including warts, verrucas, molluscum and chicken pox are contagious and often passed on through contact with another infected child. It is important your child’s skin condition is quickly diagnosed so contact with other children in settings such as school or nursery are avoided.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CHILDREN’S DERMATOLOGY CONDITIONS?
Skin conditions in children can vary from rashes to spots or sores. Many of these symptoms will make the affected skin itchy, painful or sensitive. Symptoms of children’s dermatological conditions can also go beyond the skin itself and may include headaches, fatigue or aches and pains all over the body, so it is important to get your child’s skin condition assessed by a consultant dermatologist so it can be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.
HOW CAN CHILDREN’S DERMATOLOGY CONDITIONS BE TREATED?
Most dermatological skin conditions in children can be identified and well controlled which can quickly restore quality of life back to you and your child. Here at Stratum Dermatology Clinics, we will be able to provide you with a treatment strategy to help control your child’s ongoing disease.
There are many different dermatological conditions found in children that are unique and not found in adults, so seeing a dermatologist who is trained in paediatric dermatology and understands these conditions and treatments is important.
Treatments for more common skin conditions such as eczema or acne might vary depending on the age of a patient so seeing an expert in children’s skin disease will ensure your child has the most appropriate treatment for their age.
It is important to not cut out important foods in your child’s diet, including milk, dairy or wheat without discussing with a health professional first.
