Children’s Dermatology

Paediatric dermatology encompasses skin, hair and nail problems affecting children, including newborns and infants.

Some of these conditions are more common in children, and some only affect children. A few of these are listed below:

  • Atopic dermatitis (also called eczema).
  • Birthmarks, including port-wine stains.
  • Psoriasis.
  • Skin disease that a child is born with.
  • Skin infections including molluscum contagiosum
  • Vitiligo.
  • Warts.


We are able to carry diagnose and treat many childhood skin problems, and can also carry out certain surgical and laser treatments on children at our dermatology clinic on Harley Street, Elstree and Northwood.

Dr Anjali Mahto is our specialist paediatric dermatologist who is happy to see children of all ages as well as adults at our skin clinic.
