BELL, MD I My family and I just returned from a trip out to Oklahoma and New Mexico We had a great time and had a chance to visit some of our friends from our work with the Indian Health Service m Oklahoma. The Indian Club of Talihiha OK presented me with an eagle leather tan for my work with that group and the Choctaw Nation Of course. I was very honored' I thought it would be good to repeat an article I did last year oo atopic dermatitis (sometimes called eczema). Remember that atopic dermatitis is one of the most common slun problems seen in kids and occurs in about 5% of children under the age of 5 It is a chrooic condition thai occurs in genetically predisposed individuals The cause of this rash is unknown Eighty percent of affected individuals have a personal or family history of allergies These patients have an increased susceptibility to asthma, hay fever, and other allergies. The typical rash of acute atopic dermatitis is red. crusted. or scaly plagues consisting of tiny blisters and bumps Thickened skin with prominent slun markings is a feature of chronic dermatitis and results from repeated rubbing and scratching Post-inflammatory skin color changes are common, particularly in dark skinned individuals Tte distribution ofthe rash varies with the at* of the patient lit tannic eczema (in children less than 2 years of age) involves mainly the anas, legs, cheeks, scalp, and trunk. Childhood eczema (2 years of age lo puberty) usually involves the wrists, ankles, and folds of the elbows and knees After puberty, atopic dermatitis tends to have a predilection for the - face. neck, hands and feet. f Sometimes eczema rashes get ' infected with germs and form blisters/ or pustules Antibiotics (either by mouth or topically I are usually needed to clear this condition Approximately 80*/. lo 00% of children who have atopic dermatitis outgrow the condition by puberty Of course this is good news for patients as well as parents who are helping treat this condition. Next week we will discuss the management and treatment of atopic dermatitis. I would like to extend a thank you to Miss Lumbee, Natasha Wagner, for her participation in the Red Earth Festival this past weekend in Oklahoma City She did a fine job of representing her people at thai prestigious event. I hope we continue to allow our princesses to participate with other Indian royalty at these pow wows and festivals, it is good experience for the individual and good public relations for our tribe Seeya!
