Babies can have various skin conditions that make them uncomfortable and can develop over time without the right course of treatment. Some doctors specialize in dermatology for babies who can help reduce the symptoms and appearance of skin conditions in children as young as under a year. If you notice an issue with your baby’s skin, call DSA Dermatology in Plano, Texas.
Common Skin Conditions in Babies
Some of these common conditions can appear as soon as birth and continue through the childhood years. In some cases, it can become a potentially permanent condition requiring ongoing professional care. To get the best results, always choose a qualified dermatologist who specializes in treating infants and babies. Some diseases they treat can include the following.
Erythema toxicum- This is a rash found in newborns that have small yellow or white dots. Proper treatment can help them clear up in a few weeks.
Milia- Some babies have little white bumps on their faces. These bumps are blocked oil glands and may require treatment.
Eczema- Is a red, scaly rash that is itchy and noticeable. It can spread over the body over time.
Psoriasis- Scaly, itchy, dry patches are resulting from a build-up of skin cells. It is likely an immune disorder.
These conditions can be minor, but some require immediate and ongoing attention by a licensed professional with previous experience working with infants and babies to clean or treat their skin conditions.
When to Seek Treatment
It’s essential to seek an opinion from a specialist as soon as a skin condition is noticed. The doctor can do a comprehensive evaluation and decide which treatments, if any, are necessary. Over time, even stubborn skin conditions can drastically improve and allow your baby to feel comfortable with their skin.
