Pediatric Acne Dermatologist

Acne is not just a teenage issue; it can affect individuals of all ages, including infants. At MJR Dermatology, we specialize in pediatric acne treatment, addressing skin concerns in both babies and teenagers. Our experienced dermatology team, led by the esteemed Dr. Matthew Reschly, is equipped with the latest advancements in skincare to effectively manage and treat acne in younger patients.

Understanding Pediatric Acne: From Infants to Teens

Acne in babies and teenagers, while similar in appearance, often has different underlying causes and requires specialized approaches for treatment.

Infantile Acne Symptoms

Infantile acne typically appears in babies between the ages of 3 and 6 months. The symptoms can include:

  • Small red or white bumps (papules or pustules) on the cheeks, forehead, and chin
  • Mild inflammatory lesions
  • Rarely, more severe forms can develop, leading to more noticeable acne signs

While infantile acne is generally mild and resolves on its own, it’s important to consult a dermatologist to ensure proper care and to rule out any other skin conditions.

Teenage Acne: A Common Yet Complex Condition

As children enter their teenage years, hormonal changes often trigger the onset of acne. This can range from mild to severe and can significantly impact a teenager’s self-esteem and quality of life. Teen acne typically manifests as:

  • Blackheads and whiteheads (comedones)
  • Red, inflamed papules and pustules
  • In severe cases, cystic lesions that can lead to scarring
