About Eczema

Eczema is a common skin condition, affecting every 1 in 10 children, and usually begins before children turn one year old.1 There is no cure, but there are numerous treatment options available such as topical creams or ointments. There are other self-care tips that one can use in order to combat the symptoms, such as keeping the skin moisturized and avoiding harsh soaps and creams.

Children or teens with eczema usually get patches of itchy and dry skin that can be so uncomfortable they interfere with sleep. Additionally, scratching can cause the rashes to get infected, which may lead to more serious issues.

Symptoms to look out for are:

  • Dry skin
  • Thick, cracked or scaly skin
  • Red or brown/grey patches on the skin
  • Itching (usually more severe at night)
  • Bumpy "chicken skin"

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a clinical research study?

A Clinical Research Study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps answer important questions about an investigational drug or device, such as: does it work, or how effective is it compared to another drug/device?

All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.

The Pediatric Eczema Study will include various visits to a study clinic in your area and follow up phone calls at designated times.
