Eczema

Eczema is a very common skin problem. The most common form of eczema is called atopic dermatitis.

Atopic dermatitis often begins in infancy, affecting about 15 percent to 20 percent of children. It usually improves as the child grows older and resolves by school age or puberty. Some children with atopic dermatitis may have more chronic disease.
