Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis) (Pediatric)

Pediatric EczemaEczema, 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.”

The National Jewish Health for Kids pediatric eczema team brings together physicians, nurses, dietitians, psychiatrists and psychologists.
