For many patients, their journey with a dermatologist begins during infancy or as a small child suffering from a skin condition or allergy. Some children as born with chronic skin conditions or cosmetic issues that parents wish to treat early. These conditions can range from simple check-ups on moles and birthmarks to treating conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
At Dr. Cynthia Tie and Dr. David Pascoe, we use a variety of tests and treatments to treat and heal your child’s skin conditions. Some of the most common skin conditions we treat include:
- Dermatitis, also known as a skin rash
- Hives, typically as a result of contact dermatitis
- Psoriasis, the chronic condition that causes dry, scaly skin
As a parent, it is important to monitor your child’s skin to ensure they aren’t suffering from a skin condition. The challenge with children is that, oftentimes, they may not have the ability to verbally express their pain or even understand that something is wrong. By bringing your child in and having our team conduct a full skin check-up, we are able to recognize any developing skin conditions, identify treatment options, and ensure your child is happy and healthy.
Most of our services and treatment plans can be done right here in office and range from prescription creams and medications for ongoing conditions to immediate, minor surgical procedures such as biopsies, removal of lesions (cysts, warts, etc.), and the treatment of birthmarks and moles.
