Children in America are at Increased Risk for Developing Eczema. But Healing is Possible.

Currently, one out of every five children in the United States is affected by eczema, and this number is on the rise. Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is an inflammatory skin condition characterized by allergic inflammation of the skin.


Children with moderate to severe eczema are at risk of progressing along the "allergic march", increasing their chances of developing other allergic conditions like allergic rhinitis (seasonal allergies), IgE anaphylactic food allergies, and asthma.


Research indicates that children born outside the U.S. have a 50% lower risk of eczema development. However, those who relocate to the U.S. face an elevated risk of acquiring this chronic skin condition after living in the country for a decade.


Unfortunately, American children are now exposed to an overwhelming amount of toxins on a daily basis; from food and water to skincare products, air pollution, and more. Children also suffer more from inadequate sleep and sedentary lifestyle which further exacerbates the problem.


This excessive exposure to toxins can overwhelm and overstimulate the immune system, leading to immune dysfunction and the onset of eczema.


Natural Way Pediatric Dermatology focuses on identifying and treating the underlying causes of children's skin issues through natural, gentle, evidence-based approaches.
