Insect bites and Infestations (lice, scabies) Treatments:

Though most children will experience insect bites at some point in his or her life, they are common points of infection and should be closely monitored when they occur. Some of the most common insect bites that can cause illness include flea bites, tick bites, and bedbug bites, all of which have been known to transmit disease. If you suspect any of these, contact Premier Dermatology right away for a consultation and advice on preventing bites in the future.

Infestations are also common among children, particularly when it comes to head lice and scabies. These insects belong to the same family and live on the hair shaft, usually on children. Though there’s very little risk, lice and scabies can cause a great deal of discomfort, and the resulting scratching can lead to infection. Schedule an appointment with Premier Dermatology for treatment and advice.

I have been going to Dr. Lunder for 15 years+. She is a wonderful dermatologist. She watches for precancerous spots and takes great care of my skin. She is always willing to discuss cosmetic treatments but never pushes anything. Her assistant Sue is also knowledgeable and comforting. Her office Premier Dermatology has a very welcome staff. I highly recommend Dr. Lunder and this office.
