Children and Teen Care

As a trained child and adolescent psychiatrist, Dr. Wechsler connects with children and teens of all ages. She treats a full roster of conditions affecting children and teens, including birthmarks, acne, warts, molluscum, moles and eczema. A comprehensive slate of highly effective teen care and child treatment options is available, from lasers to lotions and a myriad of other therapies. We’ll review every possible regimen with you to determine the best approach before designing an individualized treatment plan.


Does Your Child Need a Dermatologist? 

Infants, young children and teens go through so much more than we often realize. From changes to their bodies to finding their places in the world, such havoc can result in skin conditions that compound their already complicated lives. Thus, your young one has skin concerns that are very specific to their age group. Dr. Wechsler has the expertise to speak about their specific conditions. 

Baby and Teen Eczema Treatment

Dry, scaly patches can keep babies from sleeping; kids and teens can scratch so much that an infection develops, not to mention the self-consciousness that comes as a byproduct of eczema. With careful assessment, Dr. Wechsler will develop a treatment plan that alleviates the discomfort in short order and helps to keep it from recurring. 

Wart Treatments for Children 

Kids often develop common warts. These raised, rough bumps often grow around their nails or the hands. Plantar warts, which occur on the bottom of the feet, are also common in children. Not just uncomfortable, warts can be embarrassing. Dr. Wechsler can help with both problems: She will help alleviate the problems and help them feel better about themselves, too.

Acne Treatment for Teens

The majority of teenagers suffer from some form of acne; these breakouts and pimples often adversely affect self-esteem. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatment options that Dr. Wechsler uses to help your child combat acne. Additionally, having suffered her own share of skin problems during her younger years, Dr. Wechsler can act as a much needed touchstone for your child, adding a therapeutic component to treatment, which often leads to better results.*
