mother-and-babyEczema is on the increase, and it is suggested that the reason could be due to environmental changes? 

I for one know from my own experience with people I know, that work place stress can cause eczema and lets face it, we are in very stressful times with the economy as it is.

Could adult stress be transferred to children? Could this be a contributing factor? I am no expert but children are very perceptive.

I also think that school life has changed dramatically and in my opinion the pressures of the school to look good in league tables adds pressure onto young students, unnecessarily. Just my opinion!!!! 

Anyway, have a read of this article, it is quite interesting.http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7955312.stm
