The Penn State Children’s Hospital Approach to Dermatology Care

The skin, our largest organ, provides a protective covering for your child’s body. That can make it vulnerable to growths, rashes, discoloration, cysts, burns, injuries, infections and cancer. Children can also be born with genetic skin disorders or birthmarks. The pediatric dermatology specialists at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital can provide highly advanced skin care to meet your child’s needs.

Treating Common and Complex Skin Conditions

Our pediatric dermatologists diagnose and treat a wide variety of skin conditions, from common concerns like acne and warts, to complex genetic conditions, such as vascular birth marks.
