Children (Paediatric) Dermatology

Pediatric dermatology is about the safe diagnosis, classification and treatment of skin problems in infants, children and adolescents. Because their young skin often reacts differently to adult’s skin. It needs to be treated differently and individually, that is, what we know from our extensive experience in this field.

Pediatric Dermatology

Paediatric dermatology combines the fields of children‘s (paediatrics) and skin medicine (dermatology). This is important because on the one hand the appearance of skin diseases in children (infants to adolescents) can differ significantly from that of adults. And on the other hand, because many therapies that are successful in adults cannot be used in children because their bodies cannot (yet) tolerate the medication. The skin of babies and small children is much thinner. Accordingly, the dosages of externally applied active substances, such as pharmaceuticals, have to be applied differently or completely different preparations have to be used.

That is why we try to avoid drug therapies, such as antibiotics, especially during childhood, unless it is unavoidable in acute cases. For this reason, not only a thorough examination, but also an individual therapy is very important for the healing success of the child, because the therapeutic options for treatment with medication are much more limited than in adults.

This is where knowledge and experience are required. Dr. Andrea Zorn (MD), herself a mother has and gained both while working at the UKE (University Clinic Eppendorf – one of Europe’s most modern clinics with more than 11,000 employees) with one of the leading experts in pediatric dermatology:Chief physician and author of the standard work on pediatric dermatology, Prof. Dr. med. Peter Höger, specialist in pediatric & adolescence medicine and dermatology.
