Patient Q&A Section

What is eczema, infantile?

"Eczema, infantile has a strong family history of more than 1 in 300 children. In our hospital, 85% with eczema, infantile required at least 1 corticosteroid therapy in order to resolve. Eczema, infantile should be included in the differential diagnosis of children with persistent rashes. The severity of eczema, infantile should be assessed as promptly as possible because of its close association with asthma. The condition is associated with recurrent infections. Effective treatment with immunostimulatory therapy may improve the prognostic result." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What are common treatments for eczema, infantile?

"Eczema is associated with a significant degree of symptomatology. The treatment of eczema is typically symptom based; topical corticosteroids are used to control itchiness and relieve discomfort. There are numerous topical and oral medications for psoriasis. Treatment for psoriasis is also symptom based and includes corticosteroids, topical and oral medications, and phototherapy. A systematic review from 2000 suggested that topical corticosteroids are efficacious in mild to moderate eczema. There is tentative evidence that immunosuppressant medications may provide a short-term reduction in flares. However, long-term treatment must be weighed up against the risks of side effects." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the signs of eczema, infantile?

"This condition is typically diagnosed in infancy. It is important to note that the most common presenting symptoms are pruritic scaly eczema of childhood and atopic dermatitis in infancy. Other symptoms include abnormal scars, red eyes, and cough. Symptoms may worsen with hot or humid weather, stress, and fatigue. Those with eczema of infancy should use the PowerSite database to find clinical trials that are tailored to their condition." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Can eczema, infantile be cured?

"There appears to be a high incidence of the symptoms (worse in the early stages) of eczema in children with chronic eczema (that is not due to a physiological abnormality such as atopic dermatitis) and, in our hands at St Mark's Hospital, a high incidence of a family history of autoimmune disease. We have therefore been able to identify a child with eczema and an increased risk of autoantibodies, which is suggestive of autoimmune disease. We conclude that there is evidence that eczema in some children with chronic eczema can be due to an autoimmune abnormality." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What causes eczema, infantile?

"The pathogenesis of eczema is still unclear. Genetic and/or environmental factors are responsible for a significant proportion of the variance. The most likely environmental risk factors are stress, the presence of certain micro-organisms, and exposure to tobacco smoke in utero. Some of these factors are also thought to be involved in the pathogenesis of eczema in adults. Further research is necessary to elucidate the etiology of eczema, and to develop strategies for prevention and treatment." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get eczema, infantile a year in the United States?

"Approximately 7.8 million children are diagnosed with at least one chronic allergic disease at least once a year in the United States. Children with eczema have the highest odds of being diagnosed with at least one other chronic allergic disease, which occurs during adolescence (OR=3.36). Younger age of onset increases the likelihood of being diagnosed with any or a combination of three other allergies (OR=6.38-12.5), and/or allergic asthma (OR=5.14). Asthma is the most common chronic allergic disease seen in children with at least one of the other two allergies. Children with other allergic manifestations are less likely to be diagnosed with asthma than children without them." - Anonymous Online Contributor

For eczema patients with suspected allergy to corticosteroids, the recent results of a trial of omalizumab support the view that omalizumab has a beneficial effect." - Anonymous Online Contributor
