Children experience skin problems differently than adults do, as their skin is more sensitive and still developing. Also, many skin problems are unique to children. That’s why it’s important they receive care from a dermatologist who specializes in pediatric dermatology.

We are the only teaching program in South Carolina where children receive care from such specialists. Our pediatric dermatologists treat children of all ages, including newborns and teens. We deliver safe, effective care for any diagnosis. Find out more about pediatric dermatology at MUSC Children's Health.
