It’s difficult to watch your child struggle physically and emotionally with a skin-related disorder. In the Sutter Health network, pediatric dermatologists offer comprehensive diagnostic, treatment and management services for common and complex skin conditions in children (ages 5 and up) and teens.
Pediatric dermatologists understand that children have unique medical needs that change as they grow and mature. Doctors work in collaboration with your child’s pediatrician and any disease-specific pediatric specialists needed to address your child’s specific condition.
We treat acne, hair and nail disorders, skin infections, rashes, eczema and psoriasis with a combination of topical and oral medications, plus minimally invasive surgical procedures. We also offer laser therapy for pigmentation disorders and vascular birthmarks, such as port wine stains and hemangiomas.
Across the Sutter Health network, dermatologists are certified by the American Board of Dermatology and regularly receive patient choice awards for outstanding care. Many doctors are members of the American Academy of Dermatology and the Society for Pediatric Dermatology.
