WHAT CAUSES SKIN CONDITIONS IN CHILDREN?
Children can suffer from a variety of skin conditions, each of which has a different cause, set of symptoms and possible treatments. Eczema is the most common skin condition in children, often developing when they are very young, and it can be caused by irritants to the skin such as fragranced washing powder or animal fur. Rashes are very common in younger children, but thankfully most will disappear without any treatment. Contagious infections such as warts and chickenpox can spread through contact with another infected child, and parents should take action if they believe their child has contacted one of these illnesses. Understanding the causes and recognising the symptoms can go a long way to alleviating a child’s discomfort from these distressing skin conditions.
HOW CAN CHILDREN’S DERMATOLOGY CONDITIONS BE TREATED?
Our experienced team of professionals work hard to ensure your child receives tailored, individualised treatment plans for their dermatological conditions. By establishing the underlying cause of the condition we are able to create an effective plan to target it. This could involve a range of different methods and treatments based on age, severity and ease of administration. Additionally, our practitioners discuss with parents or guardians any medication that may be appropriate to provide relief from pain and discomfort associated with the skin condition. At St Michael’s Clinic we make sure your child receives the best care possible, so you can relax knowing they are safe in our care.

Skin conditions can range from minor allergies to more severe diseases and typically require different forms of treatment, depending on the type of condition. Eczema, rashes, chickenpox, measles, warts, hives and acne are some of the most common skin conditions seen in children and each one requires its own set of specific treatments.
Symptoms such as itchiness, irritating redness and swelling must be carefully monitored and managed as they may get worse if left untreated. Reactions to allergies are also prevalent in younger children as their bodies come into contact with a substance for the first time.
Understanding the different skin conditions can help parents accurately identify symptoms, ensure that their child receives adequate treatment and help them find a solution that works best for the entire family.
