Pediatric Pointers I
By JOSEPH T. 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!
