Meta Description: Atopic Eczema in children is a common condition with increasing prevalence. Its impact on the quality of life of the affected child and its family is often underestimated.
Atopic Eczema affects more than 10% of the pediatric population worldwide. It is the most common chronic inflammatory skin condition in children. In the United States, it is estimated that approximately 10-20% of children are affected and there is evidence that the incidence is increasing. Atopic Eczema carries significant, often underestimated, morbidities and costs. More than half of affected children suffer from sleep disturbances, while more than 25% report problems with sports, school or holidays. A study in Australia found that caring for a child with Atopic Eczema has a greater impact on a family’s quality of life than caring for a child with diabetes.
