to schedule your child for her/his acne, wart, molluscum or other pediatric dermatologic appointment.

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC’s Acne Treatment Center is the only one of its kind in the region. Acne is the #1 condition treated at the Division of Pediatric Dermatology at Children's Hospital, and the reason the Acne Treatment Center was established.

Some parents may feel that acne is a “rite of passage” and need not be treated; however, it can cause significant stress for a child or teenager and, in some cases, scarring that can last a lifetime. Acne is the most common (and almost universal) skin problem among school-aged and adolescent children, yet it is very treatable.
