Rashes Treatment

Rashes, areas of redness and inflammation, can appear on the skin after exposure to certain substances. These conditions, which tend to occur in young children, can be acute or chronic. At Sunshine State Dermatology, the team provides effective treatments for rashes, from simple home care practices to prescription medications. The goal is to help children prevent rashes by avoiding irritants, maintaining hand hygiene, and ensuring proper vaccinations.

Eczema Management

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, results in chronic, itchy rashes and affects 10 to 20 percent of all infants. Sunshine State Dermatology offers several treatments to help relieve symptoms, including topical steroids, antihistamines, immunomodulators, cold compresses, and other home remedies.

Birthmarks Monitoring

Birthmarks, benign pigmented patches of skin present at birth, can range in color and size. Although usually harmless, some birthmarks may develop into cancer and should be monitored regularly. Sunshine State Dermatology offers birthmark treatments depending on the patient's age and lesion type.

Acne Treatment

Acne, an abnormality within the oil glands that causes skin cells to reproduce and develop pimples, whiteheads, and other lesions on the skin surface, is most common in teenagers. Sunshine State Dermatology offers a variety of treatments for acne depending on the type, severity, and location of acne lesions.
