Eczema Specialist and Food Allergy Clinic for Babies, Toddlers & Kids

“Improving quality of life for children with eczema and food allergies” 

Wondering when to see an eczema specialist? Now is the time.

Our baby and kids skin clinic specialises in...

...and we send you home with a personalised management plan​

What is a personalised management plan? 

Your personalised management plan will be created by one of our in-house baby and kids’ eczema or food allergy specialists, and will cover the following;  

Diagnosis

No matter what skin condition or allergic symptoms your child is experiencing, a formal diagnosis will give you a better understanding of exactly what needs to be treated.  If a diagnosis can’t be made, further testing and investigations may be required, and these will be organised for you.

Goals

Whether it’s skin or food related, together with your clinical specialists, you will create treatment goals that you will work towards achieving through the management plan. 

Treatment

Whether your treatment plan involves at home care such as medicated soaps and ointments, or whether you require more targeted prescription medicines such as antihistamines or corticosteroids, we’ll give you specific advice on what to do, how to do it, how often and when. 

Resources

You will be given a list of resources that will assist in your understanding of the issue, including instructional videos, checklists, and contact information for experts you can call for extra help.

All Baby Skin Clinics are run by specially trained GPs and Nurse Practitioners, supported by consultations from Paediatric Immunologists, Dermatologists and Dieticians.
