Why do Children Need Pediatric Dermatologists?

It is important to remember that children are not just small adults. Sometimes they cannot express what is bothering them. They cannot always answer medical questions, and they cannot always be patient and helpful during medical examinations. Using kid-friendly offices and medical equipment designed for children, pediatric dermatologists examine and treat children in a way that makes them feel comfortable.

Pediatric dermatologists have specialized training and experience in knowing what's normal development for children. Several childhood medical conditions, such as infantile hemangiomas, do not occur in adults. When a child suffers from a common condition, such as psoriasis, they may experience unique symptoms. Children's dermatologists specialize in diagnosing and treating skin diseases in children, including appropriate pediatric medication management.

A pediatric dermatologist can provide your child with the best medical care possible if your pediatrician recommends that they see one. Book an appointment to consult with our expert pediatricians.
