What to expect

What skin conditions do we treat in children?

Our Children’s Dermatologist treats a wide range of paediatric skin conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • Baby Eczema: A chronic condition marked by itchy, dry skin, which we manage with specialised, gentle treatments suitable for babies.
  • Teenage Acne: We offer comprehensive treatments for acne in teenagers, addressing pimples, blackheads, and cysts with both topical and systemic therapies.
  • Neonatal Acne: Treating baby acne requires a delicate approach, which our dermatologists provide with the utmost care.
  • Birthmarks in Infants: Our evaluation and treatment plans are tailored for different types of birthmarks, ensuring the best possible outcomes for your baby.
  • Warts in Children: We employ safe, effective removal techniques that are gentle enough for young skin.
  • Pediatric Dermatitis: Our clinic addresses various forms of dermatitis in children, focusing on relief and long-term skin health.
  • Skin Allergies and Rashes: We identify and treat skin allergies and rashes, offering relief and prevention strategies for children.
  • Mole Checks for Children: Regular mole checks are essential for maintaining skin health, and our clinic provides thorough evaluations.

These conditions are just the beginning. Our paediatric dermatology services cover all aspects of skin care for children, ensuring their skin health and comfort.

Do I need a referral?

You’re welcome to book an appointment directly with our dermatologist without a referral. For those seeking a Medicare rebate, please book a consultation with our in-clinic GP, Dr Dane Andersen or Dr Heather Jenkins, for the necessary referral.

How do I prepare my child for their dermatology appointment?

Please bring relevant medical records, a list of your child’s current medications, and notes about your child’s skin condition, including how long it’s been present and any previous treatments.

Talk to your child about their appointment in a calm and reassuring manner. Let them know the dermatologist is there to help them feel better. Depending on their age, you can role-play the visit or read them a story about visiting the doctor.

What happens during my consultation?

Choosing a paediatric dermatologist means selecting a specialist who understands the unique skin care needs of children and how these needs evolve as they grow. Our team at The Skin Lab is specially trained to offer the most comforting and effective care, ensuring your child’s visit is a positive experience.

Remember, each consultation may vary based on your specific needs. It’s important to communicate openly with your dermatologist and skin specialist and share any questions you may have to ensure you and your child receive the best possible care.

What happens afterwards?

We’ll provide you with detailed at-home care instructions tailored to your child’s specific condition. General tips include gentle skin care routines, proper sun protection, and avoiding known irritants.
