Paediatric Dermatology

What we do

We offer a comprehensive range of services to children with skin diseases including skin cancer. The service is run by Dr Kennedy. There are two general clinics per week. Fast track referrals for suspected skin cancer can be made.

Conditions we treat

We will see any child with a skin problem which cannot be dealt with by GP surgeries or clinics.

Treatments we offer

We provide a range of skin surgery, primarily for skin cancer, but for some other non-cancerous skin problems such as nail disorders. We also offer skin allergy testing (patch testing) with assessment and advice on occupational skin disease and contact dermatitis, ultraviolet light therapy for psoriasis and a range of other skin problems.

We also provide nurse-led wet bandaging, liquid nitrogen cryotherapy, phototherapy, iontopheresis, intralesional steroid injections and cosmetic camouflage. Some of these activities are carried out in the Bristol Dermatology Centre.

Specialised investigations available include skin biopsy, skin prick testing, patch testing, scraping and culture for fungal analysis.

We provide the only dedicated outpatient department and wards for management of chlidren's skin diseases in Bristol.
