Pediatric Dermatology

In addition to the medical and cosmetic services we provide for adults, our dermatologists offer specialized pediatric services. Doctors of the derm group diagnose and treat all skin conditions in patients from birth to age 18, with the sensitivity and compassion it takes to care for children.

When you bring your child to our practice, you can trust us to provide only the best care for your family. The Derm Group offers extended hours for convenient scheduling.

What Is Pediatric Dermatology?

If your child has a skin condition such as birthmarks, eczema, warts, or psoriasis, a pediatric dermatologist has the experience and qualifications to treat it. Adult solutions are sometimes not appropriate for children; a pediatric dermatologist understands the unique treatments that will be safest for your children.

What Types of Treatments Do Pediatric Dermatologists Provide?

Pediatric dermatologists provide medical care for a variety of skin conditions. They generally provide the following services:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of various skin conditions, including contact dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, hives, warts, hemangiomas, birthmarks, and congenital skin disorders
  • Prescription treatment of skin conditions
  • Medical and/or surgical treatment of skin conditions such as warts and molluscum (pea-sized yellow or pink lumps)
  • Surgical removal of molluscum, warts, and other small lumps in the skin such as cysts
  • Skin biopsies

The Best Care For Children

Children are not just small adults. They cannot always say what is bothering them. They cannot always answer medical questions, and are not always able to be patient and helpful during a medical exam. Pediatric dermatologists know how to examine and treat children in a way that puts them at ease. If your pediatrician suggests that your child see a pediatric dermatologist, you can be assured that your child will receive the best possible medical care with our team.
