What You Need To Know About Childhood Eczema

An experimental treatment for eczema that aims to modify the skin microbiome safely reduced disease severity and increased quality of life for children as young as 3 years of age, a National Institutes of Health study has found. These improvements persisted for up to eight months after treatment stopped, researchers report Sept. 9 in Science Translational Medicine.

Over the last decade the rise of childhood eczema has more than doubled. Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is more than just dry and itchy skin, it can be a life altering condition. Skin disorders, including eczema, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, were present in about 8 percent of children in 2000 and in the year 2010 it was closer to 15 percent. Eczema is a chronic condition that usually starts in childhood, and causes patches of skin to become dry, inflamed and often intensely itchy. And, studies have shown, eczema seems to be on the rise.

10% of people are diagnosed with asthma; 1 in 4 children will develop eczema before the age of 2; It’s predicted that if something doesn’t change, by 2050 the number of people with these conditions in Australia will increase by 70%. That means that around 7.7 million Australians will be affected by one or more of these diseases. Eczema, food allergies and asthma are all on the rise in children, and experts say that’s no coincidence.

New research shows how treating a baby’s skin may save them from a lifetime of allergic. Eczema Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a skin disease whose incidence is on the rise. Recent studies suggest that as many as 20% of American children will suffer from some manifestation of eczema with most presenting first with symptoms before five years of age. Eczema has historically been referred to as the “the itch that rashes”. Eczema is a chronic condition that usually starts in childhood, and causes patches of skin to become dry, inflamed and often intensely itchy.

And, studies have shown, eczema seems to be on the rise. Eczema can look different depending on the type of rash and where it appears on the body. Symptoms typically flare up for a period of time and then calm down before surfacing again. It is estimated that around 15 million people in the UK are currently living with eczema, but while the condition is still primarily associated with children, one in 12 sufferers are actually.

However, in one new study, the benefits of probiotics for eczema in children has finally been documented. In this study, two probiotic strains ( Lactobacillus paracasei and Lactobacillus fermentum) were either given singly or in combination and tested against a placebo in children 1-18 years of age with moderate atopic dermatitis.

  • Hello ��

    Having eczema is really annoying and will turn out your mood in an instant especially when you are exposed to an environment with changing temperature too hot/too cold.

    Using different creams or medications is a big risk in this kind of condition without prescribed of an expert.

    If you experience this like mine i do consult first to a dermatologist.
    After that she suggested 3 medications and after applying it for 1 week
    my eczema was gone i do apply it continously so that it will never get back again.

    Hope this helps that you need to consult a professional dermatologist first before doing or taking actions

  • Food can also be a factor. Mine triggers when I eat something woth high sodium so I basically have a break out whenever I eat shrimp. Eggs and chicken also gets to me, especially when I touch raw eggs. My fingers would become stiff and swollen painful and itchy.

  • Well I had Excema when I was younger and I have it again I have cream for it. My occurs in my wrist, or anytime I scratched it repeating. When I was younger I had it every where ( my mostly triggers in hot showers/hot tubs)
