Who has Baby Eczema?
Eczema usually starts in infancy (infantile eczema), with most patients developing symptoms in the first year of life (the skin is still underdeveloped and hence more prone to irritation or allergies).
In young babies, eczema is most prominent on the cheeks, forehead, behind the ears and on the hands or feet.
As the child gets older, the distribution changes towards the insides of the arms and legs, the creases of the elbows and knees, the wrists, ankles, and hands.
In general, eczema symptoms become less severe with time. Many children “outgrow” eczema by the age of 2.
Eczema symptoms can return later in life. Approximately one third of atopic eczema patients can also develop asthma and/or hay fever.
