Atopic eczema is the one of the most common inflammatory skin disease of childhood, affecting 12-15% of children in the US at any one time. Adults make up about one-third of all community cases. Moderate-to-severe atopic eczema can have a debilitating effect on the quality of life for both sufferers and their families. In addition to the effects of intractable itching, skin damage, soreness, sleep loss and the social stigma of a visible skin disease, other factors such as frequent visits to doctors, special clothing and the need to constantly apply messy topical applications all add to the burden of the disease. The cause of atopic eczema is unknown, though a genetic pre-disposition and a combination of allergic and non-allergic factors appear to be important in determining disease expression.
