What is a Pediatric Dermatologist?

A pediatric dermatologist cares for children (newborns through adolescents) with skin disorders. 

Pediatric dermatologists diagnose a wide variety of skin disorders including birthmarks (vascular and pigmented), skin infections, dermatitis (atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis), melanocytic nevi (moles), genodermatoses (inherited skin disorders), acneiform eruptions, rare forms of skin cancer, drug eruptions, viral exanthems, and collagen vascular disorders.

The Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) provides an educational series of videos on skin care and common skin conditions called “Patient Education Videos“. 

This helpful information is available for all providers and families and provides information on skin care and common skin conditions seen in children and teens.
