Eczema is an independent risk factor for impaired mental health.
At the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, reported an analysis that stated that eczema was an independent risk factor for impaired mental health in American children, appearing to influence several domains of mental health and the association remains in the absence of other atopic illnesses.
European and Japanese studies have previously suggested this connection but, this is the first study among U.S. children and it has also been established that children with eczema consult with a health care professional more often than those without. Joy Wan, MD, a dermatologist at the Children's hospital of Philadelphia study the affects of eczema in children on mental health.
When the researchers examined specific domains of mental health, they found that children with eczema were significantly less likely to be reported to be well behaved or to have good attention spans. They also were significantly more likely to worry often, be unhappy or depressed, and to get along better with adults than their peers. nd when compared with other atopic illnesses, eczema remained independently associated with mental impairment.
Eczema begins in the gut. It is usually related to and stems from food allergies/sensitivities.
