Paediatric Dermatology

Specialist skin treatments for a range of conditions

Our dermatologists can help with various conditions affecting your child’s skin, hair, and nails. This includes common disorders such as skin infections, moles, hives, psoriasis, cysts, rashes, eczema, acne and warts, as well as more complex conditions requiring a multidisciplinary approach.

Combining expertise with empathy

Children may not be able to express their fears and frustrations clearly or even give precise answers to questions on their conditions. Our paediatric dermatologists are trained to understand these special circumstances and help children feel as comfortable as possible throughout examinations and treatment procedures. The range of services we offer include:

Wet wrap therapy for Eczema

Wet dressings are applied directly onto your child’s skin to rehydrate and soothe it. It works effectively to moisturise the skin and act as a barrier to keep your child from scratching.

Sitz Bathroom

  • Aide the healing of wounds in specific areas by cleaning the discharges and sloughs
  • Assist in healing and provide relief from discomfort
  • Cleanse, relax and increase circulation to the area, to aid recovery
  • Reduce swelling
