Why see a Pediatric Dermatologist?

Children can get skin issues or conditions that are different than adults. Your pediatrician will be able to spot them and know if your child needs to see a pediatric dermatologist. 

Kids also emotionally experience and process health issues in a much different way than adults. Pediatric dermatologists are trained in putting children at ease in medical settings.

If your pediatrician suggests that your child see a pediatric dermatologist, you can be assured that your child will receive the best possible medical care.
