Children's Dermatology

Children are not small adults, so it makes sense to give the care for their skin diseases into specialized hands.

Due to the increase in allergological diseases in childhood, the diagnosis and treatment of eczema diseases such as neurodermatitis (atopic eczema) is becoming increasingly important. 10-20% of children come down with varying degrees of atopic dermatitis at the age of schooling.

In addition, pathogen-related skin diseases such as abscesses, hair root inflammation, pus (Impetigo contagiosa), body fungus (tinea corporis), viral diseases (swimming pool warts, plantar warts, herpes) are common dermatological in children. Inflammatory dermatoses such as acne or psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris) require a special therapy adapted to the child's age. Also to emphasize are congenital disorders such as conspicuous, atypical pigment marks or hemangiomas (blood sponges) occurring after birth.

The infant and toddler skin differs strongly from the skin of the adult. For an optimal treatment with long-lasting therapy success you profit in the practice of Dermatologist Prof. Robert Loewe, MD from his extended knowledge in the field of pediatric dermatology and a special empathy in dealing with the small patients and their parents.

Examinations in children:

  • Dermoscopy
  • Computer-aided video dermatoscopy
  • Removal of skin swabs for bacteriological examination
  • Removal of skin material for cultural cultivation and detection of fungi
  • Allergological skin tests (prick and epicutaneous test)
  • Blood collection with anesthetic cream
  • Skin sampling or small surgical procedures such as removal of pigment in local anesthesia

Treatment of children:

  • phase-appropriate basic therapy of atopic dermatitis
  • Local drug therapy of atopic dermatitis
  • local and systemic therapy of e.g. infectious skin diseases
  • icing (cryotherapy) of viral warts (plantar warts, Verrucae vulgares)
  • Removal of pool warts (Mollusca contagiosa) after local application of anesthetic cream
