Childhood Eczema Persists Into Adulthood
Children with eczema continue to suffer from the condition well into adulthood, as per the analysis carried on patients. Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, causes unbearable itching and inflamed skin. In some cases, childhood eczema sufferers continue to face the challenge for a lifetime.
Dr. David Margolis from University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine carried out an analysis of eczema symptoms in 7,100 children. The patients were followed-up for a period of five years. Every six months, they were asked if they suffered from eczema.
The research has been published in April 2 issue of JAMA Dermatology. Dr. Margolis said, "Based on our findings, it is probable that eczema does not fully resolve in most children with mild to moderate symptoms."
64 percent of the study subjects reported that they suffered from symptoms related to eczema at least once in a six month. They had to apply skin cream or felt extreme dryness of skin. The symptoms were less after age 20.
After 20 years of age, 50 percent of the study subjects said that they did not experience eczema for a period more than six months.
People with eczema should be extremely careful about their skin. Parents should keep a close watch on their kids during adolescence. People with eczema have sensitive skin which results in frequent bouts with infection and inflammation.
The research team said, "Physicians who treat children with mild to moderate AD should tell children and their caregivers that AD is a lifelong illness with periods of waxing and waning skin problems."
People with eczema should discuss the best practices with their doctor. Additionally, making some lifestyle changes and proper skin care can help keeping it under control.
