Study of Skin Microflora in Children with Atopic Dermatitis: Eczema

ECZEMA

Overview

We invite your child to join a research study of atopic dermatitis ("eczema") at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We are trying to determine how microbes, such as bacteria and fungi, contribute to this disease. With these studies, we hope to lay the groundwork for development of more effective treatments of atopic dermatitis.
