Pediatric Dermatology Treatments

  • Transient dermatosesA correct clinical examination of the skin lesions of the newborn and the child is based not only on the identification of elementary lesions, but also on the knowledge of prenatal and postnatal maturation of the skin. Some dermatoses, in fact, are connected to the physiological maturation of the skin and resolve spontaneously in a few days or weeks.
  • Infections and genodermatosisSome skin signs may be the expression of a local or systemic infection or genodermatosis, or a genetic skin disease. In this case, a specialized approach is necessary to exclude other pathologies.
  • Skin cancer: Malignant skin cancer is very rare in children, but not impossible. A first check is advisable already in the first years of life, especially if the child has numerous moles. On the basis of the clinical examination, the frequency of checks necessary for proper prevention is established.
