Dr. Courtney Reilly Csikesz
Board Certified Fellowship-Trained Pediatric Dermatologist on the South Shore, Dr. Courtney Reilly Csikesz joined our practice in June 2016!
Why see a Pediatric Dermatologist?
Kids are not just ‘small adults’ and skin diseases can affect children differently too. Certain treatments that are appropriate for adults may not work as well or should be structured/dosed differently for children. Some diseases that affect the skin, hair, or nails are more common in children or only occur in children. Additionally, there are many rare disorders or syndromes that occur in children and are best treated by a pediatric dermatologist as most dermatologists do not typically encounter these rare entities.
A pediatric dermatologist is a dermatologist who has completed additional training (typically a 1-3 year fellowship) dedicated exclusively to pediatric dermatology. They specialize in diagnosing and treating children, including newborns and infants.
