Dermatology is the area of health that diagnoses and treats problems with the skin. At Seattle Children’s, our team cares for children and teens who have many different kinds of skin conditions.

We have a lot of experience treating common conditions, like eczema, psoriasis, warts and port wine stains. We also are experts in treating less common disorders, like morphea and lichen sclerosis. Our team is specially trained to treat children, teens and young adults up to age 21 in a setting that is safe and comfortable for them. As part of Seattle Children’s medical team, we work closely with other experts in the hospital. Other team members include healthcare providers in vascular anomalies, plastic surgery and rheumatology. We work together to give your child all the care that they need.

It’s never too early to start using moisturizer on your baby. A recent study suggests that over-the-counter, non-fragrant emollient, when used early and often, can actually prevent children from getting eczema later on. It sounds simple, but for parents who are juggling lots of other things, it’s not always easy to apply emollient to their baby five or six times a day. Nurses in our clinic work with parents to make sure they understand how important it is, and we help them find strategies to make it easier.
