A full range of dermatology services for children
Our board-certified pediatric dermatologists care for children from infancy to age 18. The team provides specialized diagnosis and treatment for the full spectrum of common and complex skin disorders—from rashes and eczema to acne to birth marks.
Comprehensive care for children with genetic skin disorders
Care may begin at birth for infants with genetic skin diseases, when our dermatologists are called upon for immediate inpatient consultation for infants born at both MedStar Health. Often treatment begins before newborns leave the hospital—and may continue over the course of their childhood.
Our experts also work hand-in-hand with geneticists and board certified pediatric dermatologists to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment of rarer genetic skin disorders, including:
- Epidermolysis bullosa
- Tuberous sclerosis
- Epidermal nevi
- Port wine stains and other birth marks
A variety of treatment options are utilized including the latest laser treatments, which may be used for several pediatric skin conditions, including vascular birthmarks such as port wine stains.
Inpatient consultation, outpatient services
The team provides consultation to medical specialists when questions arise regarding skin disorders observed in children hospitalized at MedStar Georgetown Pediatrics at MedStar GUH.
Continuing dermatologic care for infants, children, and teens with common and uncommon skin disorders is available on an outpatient basis at our Wisconsin Avenue location.
