Pediatric Dermatology

Youth-Focused Diagnosis and Treatment for Skin Conditions in NY

Pediatric Dermatology at NY’s Hudson Dermatology involves identifying and creating customized treatment plans for skin conditions with younger patients in mind.


Although acne can be a problem for people of any age, it is most commonly associated with adolescents, since hormone fluctuations during puberty increase oil production and can lead to more blocked pores. Help can focus on clearing up breakouts, minimizing future pimples, and even addressing acne scars.

Eczema/Atopic Dermatitis

Eczema or atopic dermatitis is a rashy and itchy condition that develops in roughly 1 out of 10 people in the United States, commonly when they are about 5 years old. Treatment focuses on identifying triggers and calming symptoms.


Since warts are contagious—transmitted via physical contact with the virus—children frequently develop telltale bumps. Although they can go away on their own, removal is often advised so as to not continue the chain of infection.

Molluscum Contagiousum

A poxvirus can cause the development of collections of bumps known as molluscum contagiosum, which can resolve naturally over time or may be treated for quicker relief.


Moles are typically benign pigmented lesions that may be present even from birth. Because of their connection with skin cancer, they should be examined by a dermatologist if they are growing, changing, stand out from the others, or are obviously unusual.


Psoriasis comes in multiple forms, but the most common causes thick plaques to develop on the surface of the skin. Children can develop these scaly patches, which can be treated in a variety of ways. Plans also include minimizing future plaques.
