Eczema/Atopic Dermatitis in Kids

Do you often notice your child scratching their skin, showing signs of discomfort? You're not alone.


According to the National Eczema Association, over 9.6 million children in the U.S. suffer from eczema, a common skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, and inflamed skin.


But there's hope!


Here at Natural Way Pediatric Dermatology, we believe in treating its root cause, not just the symptoms, and providing your kids with gentle, safe, and effective solutions.

What Is Eczema?

Also known as Atopic Dermatitis, it is a chronic skin condition that often appears in early childhood. Although it's not contagious, it does tend to run in families with a history of eczema, allergies or asthma.

Symptoms Include:
  • Dry, sensitive skin

  • Red, inflamed skin

  • Severe itching

  • Dark-colored patches of skin

  • Rough, leathery, or scaly patches of skin

  • Oozing or crusting

These can be very distressing for both your child and you. However, understanding that this is more than just a skin condition is the first step towards effective treatment

Causes

Although its exact cause thought to be unknown, it is believed to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors that impact the entire body. Some researchers do believe that it occurs when the immune system overreacts to irritants, leading to inflammation in the skin.

Some common triggers for eczema include:

  • Allergens (such as pollen, dust mites, or pet dander)

  • Irritants (such as harsh soaps, detergents, or fabrics)

  • Climate changes (too hot or too cold weather)

  • Stress

  • Food sensitivities (such as dairy, gluten, eggs) 

  • Overgrowth of unfriendly pathogens in the gut 

How We Can Help

Our goal here is to not only alleviate symptoms but offer a holistic approach that also addresses the underlying causes and provides your child with long-term relief.

Root Cause Analysis 

Investigating triggers and addressing gut health are key to alleviating symptoms of eczema. Promising research has shown correlation between changes in the gut microbiome and the development of eczema. We provide safe and effective treatment options to get your little one's gut health on the right track. 

Natural Science-Based Treatment

We firmly believe that nature provides us with potent remedies that can effectively manage and treat skin conditions that are designed to support our body's natural healing process, be gentle on your child's sensitive skin, and provide effective relief from symptoms.

Avoiding Triggers and Irritants

These can range from certain foods and even fabrics to environmental factors like dust or pollen. Part of our treatment protocol involves helping you identify these triggers and providing strategies to avoid them to significantly reduce the frequency and severity of your child's flare-ups.

Incorporating Anti-Inflammatory Foods

We offer guidance on how to incorporate these foods into your child's diet, offering practical tips and even some delicious recipes that even picky eaters will love.

Encouraging a Healthy Lifestyle

We encourage activities that help reduce stress and promote overall well-being, like regular physical activity, mindfulness exercises, adequate sleep, and as well as plenty of outdoor time.
