Did you know that a child’s skin is different from that of an adult? In fact, baby skin is structurally unique in that the cells are smaller and collagen fibers are thinner, meaning that is more susceptible to dryness. Because of this, a child’s skin needs to be treated uniquely, keeping these specific differences in mind. Our pediatric dermatologists are skilled in specifically treating pediatric skin conditions, so you can feel confident in knowing that your child is receiving only the best care.
Every parent wants the best for their child when it comes to their health. While you may not immediately think of a dermatologist when you are listing off your child’s doctors, it is important to ensure that a child’s skin is healthy. Because children may not always be able to express what is bothering them, it is important to choose a pediatric dermatologist to treat your child, as they are experts in the correct diagnosis and management of childhood skin diseases.
