Babies with infantile eczema develop an itchy red rash, often first on their cheeks. Because of the itching, the child may seem upset or irritable, particularly at night. The rash is normally dry, but if the skin is infected with bacteria, the eczema will begin to produce pus. This is a danger signal, and you should consult your doctor or a dermatologist if this occurs. A lot of people, who suffer from an inherited tendency to develop allergies, also show signs of so-called atopic stigmata: darkness around the eyes and a double furrow beneath them, cracks near the ear lobes and itchiness when wearing woolen / thick clothes.
The exact cause is yet unknown, it might run in the family. It's also common for children with the disease to suffer from asthma, hay fever or some other kind of allergic illness. The disease usually becomes apparent before the child reaches the age of five, and most frequently appears when the child is between two- and six-months old.Who is particularly at risk?
Children, either of whose parents or siblings suffer from one of the 'atopic' diseases – hay fever, asthma or infantile eczema.How does the doctor make the diagnosis?
