Children's dermatologist in Poltava

Children's skin is more sensitive to the negative effects of the external environment and prone to disease than adult skin.

Therefore, when a rash, peeling, redness appears, the child needs a examination by a dermatologist.

What does a pediatric dermatologist do?

Pediatric dermatologists are doctors dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin and its appendages (hair, nails) in children. The reason for making a child’s appointment with a doctor may be the following:

  • spots on the skin;
  • rash, itching, swelling in the affected area, including in the genital area;
  • the appearance of papillomas, warts, suspicious moles, ulcers or indurations on the skin;
  • profuse hair loss, itching in the scalp, dandruff;
  • white plaque or the formation of ulcers on the mucous membranes;
  • change in color and structure of the nail plate.

In addition to local symptoms, a child may experience fever, apathy, weakness, headache, indicating general intoxication. In some cases, skin symptoms can occur with digestive disorders or hormonal imbalances. Then a pediatric dermatologist will refer a child to a gastroenterologist or endocrinologist.

What is the examination by a dermatologist?

To diagnose skin diseases, a doctor interviews, conducts a visual assessment of the condition of skin or mucous membranes of a child, evaluates skin firmness, elasticity. After a physical examination, depending on the complaints, a dermatologist prescribes laboratory tests:

  • blood and urine tests;
  • allergy tests;
  • scraping the skin, hair or nails to detect fungal infections;
