Pediatric derm.: I suggest a pediatric dermatologist at a center that excels in vascular abnormalities in children. This may seem a very specialized doctor, and it is because this is where you will get the most options for treatment. You live in a big city with several excellent children's hospital centers nearby. Go on-line and seek a pediatric dermatologist that specializes in vascular malformations in children.
