Paediatric Dermatologist

Paediatric Dermatologist in London

Paediatric dermatology is the branch of dermatology that specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions in children. At The London Dermatology Centre, we offer a comprehensive range of specialist skin care services for babies and children, including the diagnosis and management of all dermatological conditions and skin diseases. Our paediatric dermatologists in London are highly experienced in treating a wide variety of skin issues specific to young patients, ensuring the best care and outcomes. Whether it's eczema, birthmarks, warts, or other skin concerns, our dedicated team is here to provide expert care tailored to the unique needs of children.

Moles in Children

Moles in Children

A mole is a small, dark, round lesion commonly found on the skin. Most moles are harmless and do not cause any problems. Many moles are present from birth, known as congenital moles, while others develop during childhood and into adult life. In children, moles can appear as they grow and their skin changes. It is essential for parents to monitor the moles on their children's skin, noting any changes in size, shape, or colour. While most moles in children are benign, it is important to be aware of any new moles or changes in existing ones, as these could indicate a need for further examination.

Our paediatric dermatologists in London specialise in evaluating and managing moles in children. They can provide a thorough examination and advise on the best course of action if any concerns arise. Regular check-ups can help ensure that any potential issues are identified early and managed effectively.


Birthmarks in children

It is very common for a child to have a pigmented mark on their body that has been present since birth. Birthmarks naturally vary significantly in size, depth, shape, and colour. We recognise that these marks can cause embarrassment and distress, and for some children, removing or reducing the appearance of these marks may be the best option.

Our paediatric dermatologists in London specialise in evaluating and treating birthmarks in children. They can provide a thorough examination and recommend the most appropriate course of action, whether it involves monitoring, treatment, or removal. We understand the importance of addressing both the physical and emotional impacts of birthmarks, ensuring the best care for your child's skin health. Find out more about birthmarks and the available treatment options by getting in touch with our paediatric dermatology clinic today.


Contact dermatitis and atopic eczema in children

Eczema is an itchy skin condition characterised by redness, itching, and dryness. There are several types of eczema, with atopic dermatitis being the most common, often beginning in childhood. One in five children in the UK is affected by atopic dermatitis. While it is most common in children, it can affect people of all ages. Many children outgrow eczema, but they may have a tendency toward dry, sensitive skin in adulthood. Other types of eczema include allergic contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis.

Eczema treatment in Children

Recognising the correct type of eczema is crucial for developing an effective treatment plan. Eczema treatment can be complex and involves a maintenance skin care programme to reduce the incidence of flares, as well as treatment for acute episodes. Our paediatric dermatologists in London specialise in diagnosing and managing dermatitis and atopic eczema in children, ensuring comprehensive care tailored to each child's needs. For more information about our eczema treatment clinic and how we can help manage your child's eczema, please contact us.

Warts in children

Warts are small lumps that often grow on the skin of the hands and feet. They can vary in appearance, but most warts are round or oval-shaped with a hard, scaly surface and a small black dot (called a seed) in the centre. Warts are particularly common in children and teenagers of school age, as their immune systems are still developing, making them more susceptible to the virus that causes warts.

Warts in children

While warts are generally harmless, they can be uncomfortable and sometimes cause embarrassment for children. It is important to monitor warts and seek treatment if they become painful, spread, or cause significant distress. Our paediatric dermatologists in London specialise in diagnosing and treating warts in children, providing effective and gentle care tailored to their needs. They can offer a range of treatment options, from topical applications to cryotherapy, ensuring the best approach for each child.

Our team understands the unique challenges that come with treating skin conditions in children and is dedicated to providing a supportive and reassuring environment. If your child is struggling with warts, consulting with our paediatric dermatologists can help manage the condition effectively and prevent future occurrences.

Consultation and diagnosis

Our paediatric dermatologists can assess children who have not responded to treatment provided by their GP surgery or another clinic, with a view to furthering analysis and trying new, approved therapies and medication.

Consultation and diagnosis

We are dedicated to providing children who are experiencing discomfort, pain, or embarrassment from a dermatological condition with a fast diagnosis and appropriate management options. Usually, a consultation with one of our specialists is all that is needed to diagnose a condition; however, if more in-depth analysis is required, we conduct a variety of examinations, including:

  • Blood tests
  • Urine analysis
  • Skin biopsy
  • Patch testing for allergies
  • Nail analysis and skin swabs
  • Hair sample examination
  • Dermoscopy
  • X-rays

Our approach to treatment

We offer a broad range of treatment options to our paediatric patients, enabling us to find a solution that best fits an individual’s condition, lifestyle, and desired outcome. During the consultation, we discuss the diverse treatment options available and decide on the most appropriate choice for the patient’s unique case. Parents or guardians are advised to accompany the patient during the consultation to stay informed and assist in making a treatment decision.

prescribe therapies

We may prescribe therapies, topical creams or lotions, dressings, medicines, or a combination of these. Our nurses and paediatric dermatologists demonstrate to patients and parents how to apply treatments at home and can advise on a general skin care regimen. Our doctors also offer advice on preventing recurring skin conditions and avoiding the spread of warts and infections. Among the modern technologies and treatments we offer to our paediatric patients are laser and IPL therapy, artificial UVA and narrow-band UVB therapy, cryotherapy, hyfrecator electrosurgery, iontophoresis, and immune system stimulation, among many others.

One of our main objectives is to help paediatric patients with warts, birthmarks, eczema, scars, and other skin conditions to gain more confidence and manage their condition positively. There can be emotional aspects to any condition, and our doctors and nurses are dedicated to helping families understand these conditions and support their loved ones. Through aesthetic and medical therapies, as well as holistic care, we strive to improve the overall wellbeing of our paediatric patients.
