The South African Childhood Atopic Eczema Working Group, a subcommittee of the Allergy Society of South Africa, published a childhood atopic eczema consensus document in 2005, covering nomenclature and classification of eczema, as well as diagnosis, pathogenesis, prevention and management of atopic eczema. These guidelines were developed because atopic eczema is frequently undertreated, although it severely affects the quality of life of patients and their families. Atopic eczema is also frequently a precursor to the development of allergic rhinitis and asthma.
