          What You Need To Know About Childhood Eczema


          December 12, 2017

          About 30 million Americans suffer with some form of eczema, a skin disorder that can cause patches of dry, red, scaly and swollen skin. The most common type is atopic dermatitis, which affects about 13% of children under the age of 18.

          Dr. Phil is joined by Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, Chief Medical Officer of Pfizer, who shares important information about this uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating condition. She explains symptoms to watch for, how to manage it, and answers the question: Is eczema contagious?
