Skin treatments for children
The Dermatology Clinic provides a broad service that caters for all dermatological complaints, including treatment of skin infections and diseases together with advice on allergies. This allows us to find the best solution for your child’s condition and lifestyle. In an initial consultation, we will invite both you and your child to discuss our many treatment options and help you make an informed decision.
Depending on your child’s condition, we might prescribe topical creams, medication or therapies, or even a combination of all three. One of our professional consultants will take time to demonstrate how to apply treatments at home and can offer advice on skincare for the future.
