Eczema in Children
Eczema (atopic dermatitis) occurs in babies, infants and children. Babies as young as one month old can be affected.
See Pictures of Eczema
About 30% of all dermatitis cases occur between the first and the seventh month of life. 90% of all dermatitis cases occur before the age of 20.
If you get past 20 without developing the rash, there’s a good chance that you’ll never get it. This rash affects both boys and girls.
In children, dermatitis can prove to be a real nuisance because of the itchiness. Children have a hard time resisting the urge to scratch.
Scratching often produces temporary relief. Most of the times, the relief experienced does not exceed the duration of the scratching.
Excessive scratching could lead to the breakage of the skin. A wound on the affected area is extremely vulnerable to infection. The principal danger is from staphylococcus aureus.
Staphylococcus aureus are bacteria which normally live on healthy skin. These bacteria can infect injured skin to produce Kaposi-Juliusberg dermatitis.
Kaposi-Juliusberg dermatitis can also be caused by the herpes simplex virus. In children, Kaposi-Juliusberg dermatitis is life-threatening.
Eczema in Infants
Symptoms of Eczema
The signs and symptoms of dermatitis vary throughout the eruption. The symptoms are also unique to the type of dermatitis. There are 9 variants of this rash. Each variant has unique symptoms.
The most common symptoms are itchiness, redness and dryness. Other symptoms may include: crusting, blistering, oozing, flaking, weeping, bleeding, cracking, swelling and inflammation.
In some rare cases, fluid-filled papules and vesicles develop on the affected area. In children, the face, cheeks, chin and scalp are the most likely body parts to get affected.
In adults, it is more likely to develop in the creases of the skin such as the back of the knees, the fold of the elbows and around the neck.
Dermatitis can develop on any body part. No body part is off limits. It could develop on the hands, genitals, eyelids, etc. In severe cases, it could even cover the entire body.

Causes of Eczema
There are three causal components to this rash: genetics, the environment and the immune system.
There is a hereditary component to the rash. You are more likely to develop the rash, if your family members had it.
Some people think that dermatitis is contagious. This erroneous conclusion is often reached because members of the same family tend to have it. Dermatitis is not contagious.
You are more susceptible to develop the rash, if members of your family have asthma or hay fever. The same pattern is observable with celiac disease.
The causal component of the environment is related to triggers (allergens and irritants) which can provoke a dermatitis eruption.
Causes of Eczema
The most common triggers include: industrial chemicals, wet cement, latex gloves, pollen, mold, certain detergents, certain fabrics and certain foods.
The list of triggers is not exhaustive. Triggers vary from one individual to another. In some individuals, triggers only provoke an eruption in the presence of another trigger.
For example, phototoxic dermatitis only occurs, when you come into contact with a trigger in the presence of sunlight.
Treatment for Eczema
Dermatitis can be treated with prescription medications such as corticosteroids and immunosuppressants.
Corticosteroids and immunosuppressants are effective for short-term treatment. They should not be used for more than 4days.
Prolonged use of these drugs can result in nefarious side-effects. According to studies conducted by the FDA, prolonged use of immunosuppressants could result in lymph node and even skin cancer.
Corticosteroids and immunosuppressants are not recommended for babies.
