Anyone able to recommend at pediatric dermatologist? My 2.5 year old has a skin condition her GP can't seem to diagnose. Oakland/Berkeley ideal, but willing to travel further of course.
My 22 mo old has been diagnosed with atopic eczema and is not responding to treatment, nor have we been able to figure out the trigger(s). I am looking for recommendations to a NON-Kaiser pediatric allergist and to a pediatric dermatologist preferably in the East Bay, but I'd go almost anywhere for the right doc. Likewise does anyone know of a natureopathic doc who is good with kids? AC
I am wondering if anyone has experience with any dermatologists in the Kaiser system who are good with children. My 2 year old has seen 2 different dermatologists, one in Richmond and one in Vallejo who were definitely not used to seeing children, who definitely made a potentially difficult situation much worse than it ever needed to be because of their abrasive manner and one who made it clear she was pretty unhappy about having to see a child. I will travel to any facility as I can't afford to pay out of pocket at this point. Thanks so much!!!!
I am looking for a dermatologist suitable for my 2and a half toddler, he has molluscum contagiosum. Valerie
Our 10 month old son has eczema and chronic diaper rash. We have seen pediatricians and a dermatologist who have been helpful, but our son continues to have problems. We think it's now time to see someone who specializes in both fields and would like recommendations for a good pediatric dermatologist in the Bay Area. Denise
I am responding to the person asking about Dermatologist Dr. Ervin Epstein. A couple of years ago, I took my daughter to see him to have a mole removed. She was only 6 at the time, and quite scared of the prospect. He was wonderful with her, and he did a great job in setting her at ease as well as in removing the mole, which healed quite nicely. Not long after that, I saw an article in San Francisco magazine in which they listed the 100 "best doctors" in the Bay Area, and I was not surprised to see he was on the list.
My daughter, who has unfortunately inherited my tendency to get moles, will
probably have to have more removed. She does not seem nearly as leery of
having this done now.
I would like to respond to the person looking for a new dermatologlist for her son. I have a daughter who is 17-months old and has had eczema her whole life. I have been to three dermatologists dealing with this issue. I really like the last one--Dr. Leslie Hilger in Oakland. However, the treatment that all have all recommended is much the same. Some of the best advice I ever got is that I will be dealing with this chronic condition for a long time to come. heather
