If your child has a skin disorder like eczema, vascular lesions (at birth or after birth), moles or other dermatologic conditions, Washington University’s pediatric dermatologists are board certified and dedicated to treating your child using the latest available methods. We’re proud to have a team of top pediatric dermatologists and physician assistants to serve children and adolescents.
Find the right pediatric dermatologist
Children cannot always say, express or describe what is bothering their skin. They sometimes cannot answer medical questions and can get impatient in a medical exam. So, finding the right pediatric dermatology provider is very important.
Each of Washington University’s pediatric dermatologists and physician assistants is expertly trained in dermatology and pediatrics, and has specific knowledge of the needs of children’s skin. We work closely with other specialists at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, including immunologists, rheumatologists, allergists, geneticists, surgeons and plastic surgeons. Our pediatric dermatology team treats children’s skin conditions and helps parents better understand skin ailments and how to treat and cope with them.
