Get to know what are the common reasons why you should see Dermatologist for your child from Dr. Shireen Furtado of Aster CMI Hospital.

If your skin itches and turns red from time to time, you might have eczema. This skin condition is very common in children, but adults can get it too.
Eczema is sometimes called atopic dermatitis, which is the most common form. “Atopic” refers to an allergy. People with eczema often have allergies or asthma along with itchy, red skin. Eczema comes in a few other forms, too. Each eczema type has its own set of symptoms and triggers. Dr. Shireen Furtado shares a brief on the same.
