Children have their own special set of skin concerns and needs and some skin conditions are much more common in children than in adults. At Evans Dermatology, many of us have children of our own and therefore understand that young children may have difficulty expressing their symptoms, such as itching. Our entire staff is dedicated to compassionate pediatric care that is sensitive to the needs of both child and parent.
Common pediatric concerns we address include:
- Eczema – an itchy rash experienced by children of all ages.
- Warts – painful and annoying (not dangerous), warts are caused by a virus and are therefore easily spread if left untreated.
- Molluscum – a painful and contagious viral (non-dangerous) condition which causes small clear or red bumps on the skin.
- Birthmarks – marks that can be pigmented (brown or black) or vascular (red), and can be addressed to determine need and course of treatment.
