Kids skin clinic:

Babies and children have soft tender skin. Their skin gets exposed to various allergens and irritants present in the environment starting from first day of life. Due to environmental pollution, allergic skin diseases of children are increasing. Over the counter products used for children should be hypoallergic and non-irritant. The diseases of young and tender skin require a specialized expertise for correct diagnosis and treatment. Many genetic diseases present with different skin manifestations, hence it’s very important that they are diagnosed correctly at the right age. This helps parents and later the child for proper management of the disease. Many adolescent skin disorders are related to diet, lifestyle and family history. So, all these aspects have to be discussed with the teenager and the parents regarding making any changes in the diet and daily routine if required.
