Pediatric Dermatology Conditions
Comprehensive Skin Care Coral Gables, FL
Dr. Mercedes E. Gonzalez at Pediatric Dermatology of Miami specializes in providing comprehensive skin care for young patients – from newborns to young adults (and their parents). We diagnose and treat conditions involving the hair, skin, and nails, and we offer many in-office dermatology procedures for your family.
Our main goal is to help children feel comfortable in their own skin and to make caring for your child’s skin condition easy. Dr. Gonzalez knows what it's like to juggle work, children, extracurricular activities, and Miami traffic, so she also offers evaluation and care for parent’s and grandparent’s skin issues too! Sometimes it's “mommy’s turn.”
Dr. Gonzalez's gentle, child-friendly bedside manner, combined with her broad and up-to-date knowledge of childhood skin diseases and their treatments, make her the preferred pediatric dermatologist in Miami. Dr. Gonzalez communicates with her young patients in a way that is compassionate and comforting, from the initial evaluation to treatment and follow-up care.
Pediatric dermatology conditions that Dr. Gonzalez commonly treats include:
- Port wine stains
- Atopic dermatitis (severe)
- Molluscum (viral skin infection)
- Acne/acne scars
- Moles/atypical moles
- Fungal skin infections
- Hair loss
- Alopecia areata
- Poison ivy
- Pigmentation disorders
- Nail diseases

After a thorough examination of your child’s condition, Dr. Gonzalez will make treatment recommendations, which may include a procedure to further diagnose, treat, or remove the problem.
