Gentle pediatric dermatology in Algonquin

pediatric dermatology treatment from Illinois Dermatologist Dermatologists aren’t just for adults. Dr. Vikram Khanna helps all patients! He treats newborns, infants, children, and teens, as well as adults. He trained at the prestigious Rainbow Babies Hospital in Cleveland, and brings that expertise in pediatric care to the Dermatology Specialists of Illinois practice in Algonquin.

Specialized care for pediatric patients

Dr. Khanna understands how important your child’s health and wellbeing is to you – he is a father, too. Most parents feel that a pediatrician can help to answer all of their child’s health-related questions. However, there are some conditions that pediatricians prefer to refer to a dermatologist for a specialist’s opinion or treatment.
We specialize in the following pediatric dermatology treatments:
  • Eczema – Dry, itchy skin that becomes red and inflamed. Dr. Khanna gets symptoms under control with oral medications, light therapy, or steroid creams, so your child can be comfortable.
  • Warts – Children are especially prone to warts. They are treated with medications to boost the immune system (which naturally clears the wart), freezing, laser therapy, or topical medications.
  • Acne – Breakouts can damage your child’s self-esteem. Early, effective treatment prevents the emotional and physical scars of acne.
  • Moles – The majority of moles on children and teens are harmless. However, because a dangerous form of skin cancer, called malignant melanoma, can develop in or near a mole, it is best to have them checked. Moles are easily removed if they are an appearance concern, or cause discomfort.
From common skin concerns to complex, difficult-to-identify conditions and challenging treatments, your child’s skin health is in good hands at Dermatology Specialists of Illinois, located in Algonquin. Dr. Khanna has the pediatric dermatology background to best diagnose and determine what type of care is most appropriate for you and your child.
