Pediatric & Adolescent Dermatology

Conditions and Services

Certain skin conditions are more common in younger patients, and some only occur in children. A board certified Pediatric Dermatologist is a full-fledged dermatologist who, through an additional year of training, specializes in diagnosing and treating skin conditions in newborns, infants, children, and adolescents. Typically, patients are 21 years of age or younger, though the cut-off for seeing a Pediatric Dermatologist may be dictated by your particular insurance plan.

Conditions that your St. Luke’s Pediatric Dermatologist commonly treats include:

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