Common Pediatric Skin Conditions Include:

Dermatitis (atopic or contact)/eczema

Dermatitis is a highly common condition in children, causing dry, inflamed, and itchy skin. Eczema (atopic dermatitis) and contact dermatitis can be linked to a broad range of causes, often manifesting as a red rash. We can provide dermatitis and pediatric eczema treatment in Phoenix, helping to pinpoint triggers, manage symptoms, and relieve irritation.

Birthmarks (pigmented and vascular)

Our doctors can evaluate your child’s birthmark to assess ideal treatment solutions, prioritizing safety and optimal results. Treatments for birthmarks available at our offices include specialized pediatric laser birthmark removal.

Molluscum

A highly contagious, common rash in children, molluscum can last years without treatment. Linked to a viral infection and spread via skin-to-skin, molluscum is typically harmless but causes bumps on the skin that can become red, inflamed, and itchy. Our molluscum treatment options can help prevent discomfort and scarring, as well as reduce transfer to other children.

Acne

Acne breakouts can begin in the pre-teen years, persisting well into adulthood and often having a significant impact on your child’s confidence and well-being. At Affiliated Dermatology, we offer an extensive variety of acne treatments for children and teens, including at-home skin care products and in-office solutions.

Rashes (viral or medication-induced)

Although most childhood rashes are relatively minor, identifying the cause of a rash is essential for effective treatment. We will help you find out which factors may be triggering your child’s rash, as well as provide topical and/or prescription medication treatments.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis treatments for children can successfully reduce flare-ups, offering relief from the itchy, irritated, and sometimes painful condition. Affiliated Dermatology has various options for pediatric psoriasis treatment in Phoenix, including topical ointments, medications, and other therapies.

Warts

Warts are small, hard bumps caused by viruses belonging to the HPV family and are extremely common in children. There are various types of warts that can affect children, some of which can cause discomfort. Our team will customize a treatment plan based on your child’s specific condition, with options ranging from prescription medication to cryosurgery or laser treatment.

Skin infections

Common skin infections in children, such as impetigo, ringworm, thrush, and others, vary considerably in severity and optimal treatments. We can diagnose your child’s skin infection and recommend/facilitate the appropriate treatment.

Skin cancers

Pediatric skin cancer, though rare, requires an extremely efficient and skilled treatment approach. Affiliated Dermatology is considered among the top providers of childhood skin cancer treatment in Phoenix and the surrounding Valley.

Hemangiomas

Hemangiomas are a highly common form of birthmark, often appearing in infants and young children. We provide diagnosis and treatment for pediatric hemangioma, minimizing the potential impact of the condition on your child’s life as much as possible.
