What is Pediatric Dermatology?
Pediatric dermatology refers to the diagnosis and treatment of any skin, hair, or nail health condition within a child. At Arlington Dermatology, our board-certified dermatologists understand how various skin conditions may affect children and are experienced in strategies on how to treat younger patients.
What Conditions Do Pediatric Dermatologists Treat?

Why and When Should Children See Dermatologists?
Your pediatrician may recommend that your child see a dermatologist for various skin conditions when they do not resolve on their own or when they cause your child pain or discomfort. Or, you may choose to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist first when an issue such as a rash, irritation, or infection is clearly causing your child discomfort or pain. A board-certified dermatologist can effectively treat your child’s condition and help maintain their skin health.
