What is Pediatric Dermatology?
A pediatric dermatologist is a doctor who specialized in treating the health of children’s skin, hair, and nails. These doctors can be found in a variety of medical settings, including university medical centers, children’s hospitals, and private practices.
It is important to remember that children are not simply small adults, and therefore may not always be able to say what exactly is bothering them. They may not be able to answer medical questions or be helpful to the doctor during a medical exam. Pediatric dermatologists have the skills to examine and treat children in a kid-friendly way that will prevent a doctor’s visit from becoming a stressful event. At Seattle Skin & Laser, we offer pediatric dermatology to treat children up to the age of 18.
Pediatric dermatologists treat a wide variety of pediatric skin conditions, including:
- Various skin conditions
- Pigmented birthmarks
- Vascular birthmarks
- Congenital skin disorders

- And much more!
