A pediatric dermatologist cares for children (newborns through adolescents) with skin disorders. Pediatric dermatologists diagnose a wide variety of skin disorders including birthmarks (vascular and pigmented), skin infections, dermatitis (atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis), melanocytic nevi (moles), genodermatoses (inherited skin disorders), acneiform eruptions, rare forms of skin cancer, drug eruptions, viral exanthems, and collagen vascular disorders.
The Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) has created a series of informative videos on skin care and common skin conditions. We hope families with children and teens find this information helpful!
Dermatology Associates of Western Pennsylvania is fortunate to have one of Pittsburgh's few board certified pediatric dermatologists! While Dr. Michael Osofsky welcomes patients of all ages, he is the practice's super-specialist when it comes to children under the age of 13 and their skin issues.
