Pediatric Dermatology Clinic
Infants, children, and adolescents receive the expertise of dermatologists with specialized training in the skin diseases of children at the Henry Ford Pediatric Dermatology Clinic. Henry Ford Dermatology is the only medical center in Michigan to provide an expert board-certified in both pediatrics and dermatology.
Common skin conditions affecting children, such as rashes or chicken pox, are diagnosed and treated by pediatricians. However, when common skin conditions do not respond to treatment or rare genetic conditions are present, pediatric dermatologists are best trained to diagnose and treat these young patients.
Other more serious skin conditions and diseases that tend to begin during childhood and require the expertise of pediatric dermatology include:
- Blistering diseases
- Allergic dermatitis
- Childhood-onset scleroderma
- Chronic hives
- Acne (infant or adolescent)
- Chronic cradle cap
Pediatric dermatology therapies
Henry Ford pediatric dermatology has the expertise and certified training to provide the required medical therapies and surgical therapies for infants, children, and adolescents across the full range of skin diseases and conditions, from the common to the most complex. Accurate diagnosis and dosage of therapies are especially critical for young patients as their body weight, height, and hormone levels change as they grow.
