Update Allergy Photo: Infant Eczema Atopic Dermatitis (2)

Infant eczema or aka atopic dermatitis often shows up between two and six months of age as a nasty, itchy rash, starting on the face and spreading behind the ear to the neck, torso, arms, and legs. Small papules or pimples can form, fill with fluid, and then burst, adding ooze to the wonderful (not!) list of symptoms. Eczema clears up in half the cases by 18 months of age and usually becomes less severe in other children by age three.
