Eczema in children
About one in 10 children will develop eczema according to KidsHealth, from Nemours Foundation. Symptoms usually appear within the first few months of life and almost always before the age of 5. On babies, it usually shows up on the forehead, cheeks, and scalp. Toddlers often have it in body folds, such as the folds in the elbows and knees; however, the rash can show up anywhere on the body. Symptoms often improve by the age of 5 or 6, but some people will have flares throughout the teen and early adult years.
