Our experts provide thorough evaluation and comprehensive treatment of your child’s eczema (atopic dermatitis).

About Eczema

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that causes dry, itchy skin. It occurs in almost 20% of children and usually begins in the first few years of life.

In babies, eczema usually starts as a dry, itchy rash on the cheeks. Older children often get the rash in the folds of their knees or elbows, on the backs of hands, or on the scalp.
