When we think of our child’s skin, we probably imagine the rosy, plump, and healthy cherub cheeks that are often associated with youth and childhood. However, for many children, this is not always the case. Children can be as prone to developing skin conditions as adults, with many long-term or chronic conditions first becoming apparent during these formative years. At Dermasurge, we offer private dermatology diagnoses and treatments for patients of all ages, including children and infants.

Skin Concerns in Children

While a child may not suffer from the dermatological concerns that can arise as we get older, plenty of children still develop skin conditions. While some may grow out of these concerns, for others it may be the beginning of a persistent long term issue. The most common conditions treated in children include red birthmarks or hemangiomas, an abnormal collection of blood vessels that grow rapidly throughout childhood, eczema or other forms of dermatitis, skin infections, and various other diseases or disorders of the skin, hair, and nails, including rare conditions.

Treating Children at Dermasurge

Our consultant dermatologist here at Dermasurge, Dr Hiba Injibar, has a wealth of experience in treating patients of all ages, including pediatric dermatology. Dr Injibar sees patients from newborns to adolescence, and is not only able to diagnose most skin, hair, and nail concerns, but can recommend and provide in-clinic treatment where required. In addition, Dr Injibar will help to support and advise parents looking to control and maintain the skin health of their child. As with adult patients, a consultation is important in order to come up with a bespoke treatment plan to achieve the best possible results for every child that we see.
