His advices are very helpful & helps renew the vigour with which we proceed with the treatment. He brings hope & positivity & this has helped the situation. He totally understands our situation & the pain the child goes through . His recommendation for wet wraps are a great relief for our child. He tries to stick to minimal medication but advises us to proceed with medication when it absolutely necessary. more..

Visited For Skin Rash Treatment
Certain doctor sub-specialities are very difficult to find - especially in paediatrics. Finding a good paediatric dermatologist (a skin specialist for children) was like finding a needle in a haystack. Certain doctor sub-specialities are very difficult to find - especially in paediatrics. Finding a good paediatric dermatologist (a skin specialist for children) was like finding a needle in a haystack.

Our son was suffering from skin rashes and dry patches and no amount of applying moisturisers or oils was helping the situation. Our paediatrician suggested we consult a specialist. This led to a few Google searches (which were further refined on Practo). Dr Ravi Hiremagalore seemed to be the only Paediatric Dermatologist in Bangalore and came highly recommended (high number of ratings on Practo). However, there wasn't a direct way to book an appointment with him and repeated calls to the phone number displayed on Practo weren't being picked.

I eventually had to go directly to the Manipal Hospital website (where Dr Ravi is a consultant) and book an appointment.

We had the first appointment slot for the day, but were informed by the receptionist that the doctor was running late. No reason or apology was issued. Lack of punctuality and the nonchalant attitude of hospitals/ clinics and doctors in general is a huge irritant (and a colossal waste of time). But sometimes as a patient one really doesn't have a choice in these matters (especially when it comes to the healthcare of children). The doctor was around 30 minutes late.

Dr Hiremagalore is clearly very knowledgeable and after a quick examination and a couple of questions he was able to pinpoint the exact problem - eczema (we were also informed that a fairly large number of children suffer from this problem - especially in Bangalore because of the dry weather). He prescribed a good moisturiser (a thick cream as opposed to lotion) for regular use and a steroid cream (only SOS) for when the rashes were severe.

Dr Ravi's overall attitude and demeanour was fantastic - he was personable and forthright with information. As a parent one is often prone to being a little paranoid about one's child's health. But he was able to put our concerns to rest. He was also very good with our infant son - helping him relax - as the appointment was during his nap time.

I'm happy to say that the medication has been very effective and the dry patches and the rashes have gone down (and disappeared completely in some cases). Overall, our experience with Dr Ravi was great, except the delay at the beginning.

Dr Ravi was also open to doing online (video) consultations for future follow-ups (if required). This is a great for us as parents as well.
