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.
