Managing cases of eczema in children and babies

Margaret Perry explains what nurses need to know when treating children with eczema in primary care
Cases of eczema can affect a child in various degrees of severity – ranging from mild through to severe

Eczema can occur at any age but frequently presents initially at a young age. The condition can present with varying degrees of severity ranging from mild to severe and can be distressing for both children and parents. There is no cure and treatment therefore aims to minimise symptoms, prevent complications, and improve quality of life.

This article will focus on eczema in babies and children, and will give an overview of this common skin condition with the and aim of helping nurses and non-medical prescribers feel more confident in assessing, advising, and treating children seen in their minor illness clinics.
