Atopic Eczema in Children: Management of Atopic Eczema in Children from Birth up to the Age of 12 Years

NICE Clinical Guidelines - National Collaborating Centre for Women's and Children's Health (UK)

Version: December 2007

Summary of recommendations and treatment algorithm

Healthcare professionals should adopt a holistic approach when assessing a child’s atopic eczema at each consultation, taking into account the severity of the atopic eczema and the child’s quality of life, including everyday activities and sleep, and psychosocial wellbeing (see Table 4.4). There is not necessarily a direct relationship between the severity of the atopic eczema and the impact of the atopic eczema on quality of life.

Treatment

Many of the treatments available for atopic eczema have been used in children. In this chapter, the evidence for each treatment is considered, starting with the most simple and moving on to more complex treatment options.
