This news is very interesting and sheds light on how eczema from parents can ultimately affect their children.
This news will hopefully spur a new wave of research looking into the differences between the sexes and the role in which a child is likely to develop the disease.
Although a large proportion of children will simply 'grow out' of eczema, for many adults, this is not the case, so any new developments in understanding the disease are most welcome.
