Unusual bumps, rashes, cysts, irritation and itching – these are just a few of the skin problems that affect children. Young skin can be especially vulnerable to injuries and infections caused by environmental factors, exposure to contagious conditions, autoimmune diseases and other triggers.

Pediatric Skin Disorders

Mercy Kids’ dermatologists specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders that affect the skin, including the scalp, hair and nails. We care for children with conditions that include:

  • Eczema
  • Acne
  • Inflammatory skin conditions (dermatitis)
  • Birthmarks
  • Scars

Diagnosis & Treatment

We get to the cause of the problem and use a variety of treatments personalized to each child’s needs, including:

  • Dietary and lifestyle adjustments
  • Medications are taken orally or applied directly to the skin
  • Advanced technologies to treat skin disorders

We know that skin problems can be uncomfortable and upsetting, and children may feel self-conscious or embarrassed. Our dermatologists treat every young patient with expert, comforting care to restore their health and their confidence.
