    Abstract

    Atopic eczema can be a disfiguring handicap in children. Scratching damages the skin and disrupts sleep, and the dry, ichthyotic skin and erythematous, lichenified skin lesions are disfiguring and sometimes accompanied by an unpleasant odor. Parents of other children, teachers, and others may fear that the condition is infectious. Sadly, eczema is a relatively neglected disorder, as is its principal symptom, itching. The primary care physician is in a good position to take an interest in all aspects of the condition, and may achieve more satisfactory results than a specialist pursuing a single line of approach.
