Pediatric dermatologists are doctors who specialize in treating children’s skin, hair, and nails. They treat children of all ages, from infants to teenagers, diagnosing and treating a wide variety of ailments, including acne and skin cancer.
The number of syndromic associations and potential morbid or life-threatening diseases lurking behind the veil of a skin disorder is truly staggering. One has only to flip through a few pages of Dr. Bolognia’s Dermatology textbook to appreciate this fact. But the most common disorders—atopic dermatitis, hemangiomas, warts, seborrheic dermatitis—can be treated by a well-equipped pediatrician with the right knowledge.
It is important to note that children also emotionally experience health issues in a much different way than adults. Thus, pediatric dermatologists train in putting children at ease in medical settings, which is important for diseases that are so visible.
