Will My Child Outgrow His/Her Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)?

Question: Will my child outgrow his/her atopic dermatitis (eczema)?

Answer: While atopic dermatitis is the most common chronic skin disease of young children, fortunately most of them will appear to outgrow this illness.

The problem is that we don't know which patient will, in fact, outgrow their atopic dermatitis and which patient will go on to have a relapsing course. Some patients who appear to have outgrown their atopic dermatitis may have a recurrence even a number of years after their illness has appeared to be in remission.
