Children's Dermatology Center
It is our privilege to provide pediatric dermatology care for the diagnosis and treatment of all dermatological conditions affecting babies, children and adolescents.
Particular consideration is given to the unique developmental and physiologic aspects of the pediatric population.
Dr. Gary places a strong emphasis on educating children and their families about skin disease, and the prevention of permanent cosmetic disability is stressed.
Pediatric dermatology service offers a wide array of pulsed dye laser therapy for port wine stains (vascular malformations), broken blood vessels, certain hemangiomas and a variety of other vascular lesions of the skin.
Conditions we treat include:
- Atopic Dermatitis
- White Spots
- Pigmentation disorders
- Contact dermatitis
- Molluscum Contagiosum
- Hair/nail abnormalities
- Viral infections of the skin
Consultation and Diagnosis
We are dedicated to providing children who are experiencing discomfort pain or embarrassment from a dermatological condition with a fast diagnosis and appropriate management options.
Usually, a consultation with Dr. Gary is all that is needed to diagnose a condition; however, if more in depth analysis is required, we conduct a variety of examinations, including:
- Blood tests
- Urine analysis
- Skin biopsy
- Patch testing for allergies
- Nail analysis and skin swabs
- Hair sample examination
Dr. Rothfeld can assess children who have not responded to treatment provided by their primary physician with a view to furthering analysis and trying new, approved therapies and medication.
Our Approach to Treatment
We offer a broad range of treatment options to our pediatric patients, enabling us to find a solution that best fits an individual’s condition, lifestyle and desired outcome.
In our consultation with a patient we will discuss the diverse treatment options available and come to a decision on the most appropriate choice for the patient’s unique case.
Parents or guardians are advised to accompany the patient during consultation so that they are informed and can help in making a treatment decision.
We may prescribe therapies, topical creams or lotions, dressings, medicines, or a combination of these.
Dr. Gary will demonstrate to patients and parents how they should apply treatment at home and can advise on a general skin care regime to adopt.
Dr. Rothfeld can also offer advice on preventing recurring skin conditions and avoiding the spreading of warts and infections.
Among the modern technologies and treatments we also offer to our pediatric patients laser and IPL therapy, artificial UVA and narrow band UVB therapy, cryotherapy, electrosurgery, iontophoresis, and immune system stimulation, among many others.
