We are delighted to bring our latest guest podcast from the team at ‘The Paediatric Commuter’ podcast. Host Dr Alexandra Pelican talks to Dr Helen Goodyear about eczema and atopic dermatitis in the paediatric population. What is it, how do we diagnose it and, most importantly, how do we manage this common childhood presentation?
