Adult & Pediatric Dermatology

Pediatric Dermatology

Conditions primarily encountered in infancy and childhood include port wine stains, hemangiomas (strawberry birthmarks), congenital nevi (pigmented birthmarks), eczema and dry skin, cradle cap (seborrheic dermatitis), acne, allergic reactions, insect bites, fungal infections, warts, molluscum, and, more rarely, genetic disorders and congenital malformations.

Adult Dermatology

Conditions primarily associated with the adult age group include skin cancers (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma), precancerous lesions (actinic keratoses), eczema (atopic dermatitis), rosacea, psoriasis, seborrheic keratoses, hair loss, shingles, allergic reactions and hives, and other rare, benign and possibly malignant skin disorders. 

Because the risk of developing skin cancer increases as one gets older, it is recommended that a regular skin examination be performed by a physicain, such as a dermatologist, skilled in recognizing the subtle changes that may occur in moles and skin growths.
