Children's skin is an indicator of their general health because it sensitively reacts to any changes.
A pediatric dermatologist diagnoses diseases associated with the child’s hair, sweat glands, skin, and nails. Usually, these problems include dermatitis, eczema, urticaria, ulcers, warts, lichen, acne.
Consult a pediatric dermatologist if your child has the following symptoms:
- skin rashes, skin sores;
- dark spots;
- blisters, crusts, itching, peeling of the skin;
- birthmarks, warts, other neoplasms;
- wet or purulent areas on the skin;
- hair loss.
A medical examination certificate from a dermatologist is often required to visit a pool or a children's camp.
