Eczema and Children

Terrasil Eczema and Psoriasis System

Did you know that eczema affects around 10-20% of adults and children in the United States? According to WebMD, “most infants who develop the condition will outgrow it by their tenth birthday, while some people continue to have symptoms on and off throughout life.” This makes eczema a chronic skin condition.

Children of all ages may suffer from eczema. It often starts during the first five years of one’s life – it may be mild or severe. With that being said, we believe it is important to know how eczema is different across the board, according to age. Understanding how eczema is affecting your son or daughter is the first step to helping soothe and treat it.

Babies:

Eczema is most prominent on the cheeks, forehead, and scalp for babies. Fortunately, eczema will not affect the diaper area (typically).

Toddlers:

Toddlers love to crawl; can you guess where eczema is typically present? For those 6 months to a year, eczema may occur on the elbows and knees.

As a toddler ages (around age of 2), eczema may spread to the creases of elbows and knees, wrists, ankles, and hands.

Adolescents:

Most older children will suffer eczema on their hands. It tends to be dry, thickened skin.
