The skin is the largest organ of the body, covering the entire body. Because it is exposed to the environment, it is vulnerable to growths, rashes, discoloration, cysts, burns, injuries, infections and other disorders. CHOC dermatologists treat disorders relating to the skin, hair and nails in infants, children and adolescents.
If your child appears to have a skin disorder, please discuss your concerns with your child’s pediatrician, who can refer you to a CHOC dermatologist for specialty care. If your child has been severely burned or injured, please seek immediate attention at an emergency care facility or call 9-1-1.
