During your first visit, we will look at your child's skin, hair and nails. If your child needs to have a procedure to diagnose or treat a skin problem, we may need to schedule another appointment on a different day. If your child needs to have a procedure, your child's provider may prescribe a cream to numb their skin so it will hurt less. It is important to put this cream on your child's skin one hour before the procedure.
If you have used a medicine to try to help your child's skin condition - either a pill or a product you put on their skin - please bring the medicine with you to your child's appointment.
It helps us to know your family's medical history on both sides, especially if your family members have had eczema, asthma, hay fever, allergies, psoriasis or skin cancer. Please be ready to answer questions about your family's medical history.
For all visits, please have your child wear comfortable and loose clothing and bring:
- Your insurance information
- Your physician order (if you have a hard copy)
- Your drivers license
- Any required forms from your school
