Does your child suffer from eczema? Eczema is officially known as Atopic Dermatitis and is included in the Atopy triad of eczema, hayfever, and asthma. More than 35 million Americans are afflicted with eczema- 1-3 % of adults and 10-20% of children in the U.S.
If you are a parent who has a child with eczema, it can be sometimes be overwhelming to understand eczema and to know what to do to prevent and treat eczema. Dr. Amy and the Baby Pibu team want to make sure you know of a wonderful organization that provides information about eczema as well as offer support you may need.
