Our skin is the body’s first line of defense against the ravages of the outside world, but unfortunately, keeping it healthy, strong, and naturally-beautiful can be difficult and, at times, overwhelming. In addition to being susceptible to damage caused by exposure to the sun, wind, and harsh environmental pollutants, our skin can also be extremely sensitive to specific irritants and medical conditions, many of which can cause irritation, inflammation, itchiness, and uncomfortable rashes. This is especially true of children as their skin is developing and becoming more accustomed to a new environment.

At South Bay Dermatology, our highly-qualified team will work with you to diagnose the root causes of your child’s specific skin concern and offer a wide array of cutting-edge treatment options to alleviate your child’s unique skin condition and help maintain your child’s skin’s healthy, vibrant glow.

Our practice specializes in treating patients of all ethnicities, and we understand the unique concerns of those patients with skin of color. Different skin types can be affected by unique skin conditions and/or may respond quite differently to similar treatments.  Therefore, we take the time to tailor our therapies to each individual skin type and offer treatments based on the unique characteristics of your specific skin.

If you would like additional information, or have any questions about these and other skin ailments and the advanced medical treatments we offer at South Bay Dermatology, or to schedule an appointment we encourage you to contact our office today.
