Skin Conditions Common in Children

There are many childhood skin conditions that we can help with at Summit Dermatology. Every parent has found a bump, rash, or mark on their child at some point, and our dermatologists have years of experience evaluating and treating skin conditions common in children. From infancy to adolescence, Summit Dermatology can take care of your child’s skin complaints with state of the art treatment that is as non-invasive as possible.

In adolescents, skin conditions such as acne, moles, and atopic dermatitis are regularly seen. Whereas in younger children, you may see common skin conditions such as molluscum contagiosum, ringworm, hives, or warts. Regardless of the skin concern, it is always advisable to seek advice from a specialist in pediatric dermatology. Acne may be common in teenagers, but it can have a significant impact on their quality of life. If left untreated, it can also cause permanent scars in some cases. Our dermatologists can expertly advise on several treatments to help get acne under control. Tailored to the individual, acne management may include a combination of medicated washes, topical creams, gels, lotions, or pill medication.

Warts are one of the most frequent conditions that we see in children at Summit Dermatology. Often found on fingers, or the soles of the feet, they can take several months or years to disappear on their own. We can offer a variety of treatment options to help get rid of warts, avoiding any further discomfort for your child. Our specialist dermatologists pride themselves on staying up to date with the latest clinical research to ensure the safest methods for treating your child’s skin complaint.

Affecting all ages, eczema (atopic dermatitis) can painfully impact everyday activities and sleep quality. With years of experience treating common skin conditions in children, our medical providers have a thorough understanding of how to treat eczema with a range of medications, topical creams, topical prescription steroids, and steroid alternatives. Whatever the skin condition, you will receive an in depth examination to ensure that the treatment plan is entirely tailored to the individual needs of your child.

Skin conditions in childhood and adolescence can be painful, uncomfortable, and can be a cause of stress and anxiety. Therefore, if you are worried that your child is suffering from a skin condition, please call our clinic at 719-667-0888 and schedule an appointment with one of our highly knowledgeable dermatologists. We look forward to helping you overcome your skin care problems.
