Pediatric Dermatology Center
The Jefferson Pediatric Dermatology Center in Center City Philadelphia offers comprehensive care for both routine and serious conditions of the skin, hair and nails. Our specially trained pediatric dermatologists care for infants, children and adolescents with acquired and/or genetic conditions.
Jefferson is proud to function as one of only two academic pediatric dermatology centers in Philadelphia, with referrals from across the tri-state region.
Diagnosing and Treating Skin Conditions in Children
Serious skin diseases and conditions that can begin during childhood and require the expertise of our pediatric dermatologists include:
- Hair loss
- Seborrhea (cradle cap)
- Skin infections (bacterial, viral, fungal)
To diagnose skin conditions and diseases, our dermatologists perform skin examinations of the total body and evaluate birthmarks and moles. A skin biopsy may be performed to diagnose or rule out certain conditions and diseases.
Treatments consist of minor surgical procedures, such as freezing or removal of warts, or removal of moles and laser treatment of certain birthmarks, and medications or creams. Outpatient services are provided at our Center City Campus and at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware.
