Pediatric and Adolescent Dermatology

Dermatologists see patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. Some skin conditions are more common in younger patients, while others only occur in children. Pediatric medical dermatologists are skin specialists who have undergone additional training to diagnose and treat newborns, infants, children, adolescents and young adults. Typically, patients are 21 years old or younger, but the cutoff age for seeing a pediatric dermatologist may be dictated by your particular insurance plan.

 

Medical dermatology conditions that your DermOne pediatric dermatologist is likely to treat include the following:

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
  • Birthmarks (port wine stains, hemangiomas, nevus sebaceous)
  • Molluscum contagiosum
  • Psoriasis
  • Pyogenic granuloma
  • Scars (hypertrophic or keloids)
  • Skin infections, such as impetigo)
  • Vitiligo
  • Warts
