Eczema, also known as Atopic Dermatitis, affects many infants and children. Australia and New Zealand  have some of the highest incidences of eczema in the world[i],[ii] with the latest statistics showing at least 20% of children under the age of 2 years have eczema, with some reports showing incidence being as high as 1 in 3 (38.5%) in infants[iii],[iv],[v],[vi]. Disruption of the skin barrier as well as irregular immune responses that favour an allergic response, have both been implemented in the pathogenesis of eczema[vii].

 

As an allergic, or atopic, condition, eczema presents with an imbalance in the ratio of Th1 and Th2 immune cells and consequently, an imbalance of the inflammatory cytokines expressed by these cells[viii]. These factors result in irregular immune system activity that skews towards a Th2 response, and a tendency to be overly sensitive to allergens[ix].  - Perfect!
