As a paediatric Dermatology Nurse Practitioner, Robyn offers evidenced based, affordable, safe and painless treatment for eczema, warts and molluscum.
She is available for eczema consultations and will provide families and children with education about common triggers and avoidance of aggravating factors. Patients will receive a thorough eczema examination and a demonstration of how to apply topical treatments correctly. With education, a detailed management plan and prescriptions for appropriate topical treatments, parents will feel empowered to manage their child’s eczema at home.
Robyn also provides treatment for common skin viruses including warts and molluscum. Lesions that are painful, multiply quickly or bother the child can be treated. Treatments offered include immuno-contact therapy or cantharidine. These are usually the most effective and pain free treatment for children with lots of lesions.
