Relevance to General Practice

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a chronic, inflammatory skin disorder. It is most common in infants where it occurs in around 1 in 5 children under 2 years of age and usually improves with age. The condition continues into adulthood in approximately 20% of people. 

General Practitioners provide the majority of advice and treatment for eczema, with only a minority of patients referred to specialist care. Eczema can be effectively treated and managed within the primary care environment; however no cures are currently available.
