Pediatric Dermatology in New York City
Pediatric dermatology involves comprehensive diagnosis and treatment services for the unique skin of infants, children, and adolescents. While children and adults experience many of the same skin conditions, certain conditions are more prevalent in younger patients and require special care that takes into account the growing needs of these patients. Children are often at risk for fungal and bacterial infections of the skin, as well as a wide array of other acquired and congenital conditions.
Our gentle yet successful treatments allow children to engage in everyday activities while efficiently managing their skin ailments. Children with healthy skin can also be seen by our doctor for regular examinations to learn about proper skin care, including adequate sun protection. Early examination by a dermatologist can promote a lifetime of healthy skin for our pediatric patients.
Dr. Bradley Glodny and Dr. Robert L. Warner are both highly skilled and experienced in treating pediatric skin conditions and strive to provide a comfortable, safe, and worry-free experience for both child and parent. We take the time to educate parents about their child’s condition to help ensure proper treatment and home care so children can enjoy clear, healthy skin as they grow.
Rash Treatment in NYC
Rashes are areas of redness and inflammation that can appear on the skin after exposure to certain substances, including chemicals, soaps, cosmetics, poison ivy, or other stimulants. Many different conditions cause rashes, which may be acute or chronic and tend to occur in young children.
Most rashes can be treated through simple home care practices such as avoiding soaps and bathing in warm water, while others may require moisturizing creams, prescription medications, or more extensive treatment. Parents can help their children prevent rashes by avoiding the products that irritate their skin, washing hands frequently, and receiving proper vaccinations.

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, refers to a group of inflamed skin conditions that result in chronic, itchy rashes and affect 10 to 20 percent of all infants.

Although no cure is currently available for eczema, several treatments are available to help relieve symptoms, including topical steroids, antihistamines, immunomodulators, cold compresses, and other home remedies.
Birthmark Removal in Manhattan
Birthmarks are benign pigmented patches of skin that can range in color from tan and brown to red, pink, or purple and are present at birth. Although they are usually harmless, some birthmarks may develop into cancer and should be monitored regularly. Depending on their size and location, some patients may be bothered by the appearance of birthmarks and seek treatment to remove them.
Treatment for birthmarks depends on the age of the patient and the type of lesion but may include laser surgery, pulsed light therapy, microdermabrasion, or surgical excision.
Acne Treatment at Park Ave Derm
Acne involves an abnormality within the oil glands that causes skin cells to reproduce and develop pimples, whiteheads, and other lesions on the surface of the skin. This may occur as a result of hormones, heredity, cosmetics, stress, bacteria, or other factors. Acne is most common in teenagers but can affect patients of all ages.
Almost all teenagers have at least some acne, and as many as one in three seek treatment to correct this condition. Treatment for acne can vary depending on the type, severity, and location of acne lesions but may include topical or oral medications, over-the-counter creams, laser treatments, cortisone injections, or Accutane® (isotretinoin). Your doctor will determine the most appropriate treatment for your child’s individual condition based on a thorough examination.
