Paediatric Dermatology

Dr. Smita Joshi graciously holds the position of pediatric dermatologist at DISHARC. Pediatric dermatology is a sub-specialty of dermatology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair, and nail conditions in children. Common pediatric skin conditions include acne, eczema, and infections. Pediatric dermatologists are trained to recognize and treat these and other conditions in children, taking into account the unique characteristics of a child’s skin and the potential side effects of treatment. They also work with parents and caregivers to educate them on how to care for their child’s skin and prevent future problems. If you have concerns about your child’s skin, hair, or nails, you may wish to consult a pediatric dermatologist.
