Skin is one of the most vital organs of our body. It not only covers our body from exposure to external microbes and infections but also helps regulate body temperature and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. Many biological disorders manifest into skin disorders and might turn into serious ailments that require surgical intervention if neglected. A skin-related disease can also affect your child’s emotional and physical health. Ankura has the best pediatric dermatologists in KPHB.
Pediatric dermatology is the branch of pediatrics that deals with diagnosing and managing skin diseases in children, including proper pediatric medication management. Be assured that our pediatric experts at Ankura will refer you to the appropriate pediatric dermatologist if they feel your child needs one.

Some of the common skin conditions we treat include Psoriasis, Dermatitis, Eczema, Acne, Warts, Hair loss, Genetic skin diseases and many more.

A pediatric dermatologist has the skills and qualifications to treat your kid if he or she has a skin condition such as a birthmark, eczema, warts, or psoriasis. Pediatric dermatologists use the most up-to-date treatment approaches to address a wide range of skin disorders in children. Dermatologists for children treat them from infancy through adolescence.
Pediatric dermatologists provide the following treatments:
- Diagnosis of various skin conditions, including hemangiomas and other vascular birthmarks, pigmented birthmarks, and congenital skin disorders, eczema or atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, vitiligo, hives, and warts.
- Treatment for a variety of conditions affecting the skin, hair, and nails
- Minor surgical procedures, including skin biopsies, surgical removal of skin lesions such as cysts and warts and laser treatment of vascular birthmarks
The ideal way is to limit the child’s exposure to any direct sunlight. Restrict use of baby oils or skincare products that have paraben as this could attract UV rays. It is advisable not to use sunscreens for babies, especially under 6 months of age.
Some children can outgrow eczema but can still continue to have dry skin through adulthood.
Acne between the ages of one and seven years old could be a sign of an underlying endocrine condition, such as late-onset congenital adrenal hyperplasia, adrenal or gonadal androgen-secreting tumours, or real premature puberty. Mid-childhood acne is a rare type of acne that appears at these ages.
Many people equate psoriasis with adulthood, yet the disorder can first manifest itself in infancy or adolescence. Excessive skin cell development causes raised, red rashes that are frequently covered in white or silver scales. Psoriasis patches are sometimes mistaken for severe diaper rash by parents.
Ringworm appears as a rash with raised, red spots on the skin that form a circle. Clear skin may be visible inside the circle, as well as some raised, red spots that aren’t connected to the outside circle. Within the rash, there may be numerous rings. In adolescents and teenagers, a ringworm rash is itchy and can cause varied degrees of pain.
A dermatologist may prescribe medication to treat eczema in babies, as well as identify triggers and irritants so they may be avoided, and recommend a bathing and at-home care routine for parents to follow.
If your child has eczema, acne, or any other skin disease that necessitates regular monitoring, it is advised that you take them to a pediatric dermatologist every three months. Having your child’s skin and moles evaluated by a pediatric dermatologist once a year is ideal for routine skin and mole inspections.
If your child requires the services of a pediatric dermatologist, the pediatrician will usually refer them. Skin problems or conditions in children differ from those in adults.
