When is the Right Time to Talk to Dr. Lamoureux About My Child?
Maybe your child has a birthmark, a wart, acne or eczema. The pediatrician you adore has treated it, but now you think it's time to see a specialist. Or maybe your pediatrician suggested it because the condition is beyond her area of expertise. So where do you go? You should schedule an appointment with Dr. Lamoureux at Skin Dermatology, as she is a doctor who treats a variety of pediatric skin conditions in children from birth through adolescence. Children experience many of the same skin issues as adults, but certain conditions are more common in younger children.
How Do You Treat Pediatric Conditions?
Dr. Lamoureux is trained to consider kids' special needs and help them feel comfortable as she examines and treats them. Kids can't always answer medical questions or say what's bothering them during an exam, Dr. Lamoureux is trained to help figure out what's going on. She teaches parents about treatment options and good skin care habits. And, with children who are old enough, she can instruct them on how to deal with and effectively manage their condition.
