Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) (Pediatric)

Make an Appointment

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin disease. It causes intense itching, with red or dry skin, and usually starts in childhood. That’s why you often hear it called “baby eczema” or “pediatric eczema.”

In Denver, Colorado, and around the country, National Jewish Health is the leader in caring for childhood eczema. The National Jewish Health for Kids pediatric eczema team brings together physicians, nurses, dietitians, psychiatrists and psychologists. These experts work together to create an individualized treatment plan for your child and often succeed where others have not.

Our doctors are researchers too, so your child will have access to the latest clinical trials and most effective treatments.

Christian McMackin

Wyoming Family Can’t Say Enough ‘Good Things’ About National Jewish Health

Christian McMackin no longer struggles for air. The youngster came to National Jewish Health in 2016 after his parents, Misti and Chris noticed that their son was coughing, wheezing and having difficulty breathing. After spending a week at the nation’s #1 respiratory hospital, Christian’s family had concrete answers about his condition. Misti continues to be pleased with the care her son receives at National Jewish Health and recommends the hospital to others dealing with asthma.
