Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a common skin condition affecting about 10-20% of children around the world. It is not just dry skin, but is distinct and can cause serious discomfort due to itching.

The majority of children develop eczema before their first birthday; however, it may appear as late as five years old.
