Parental E-Cigarette Use Linked to Pediatric AD

Pediatric Atopic Dermatitis

Electronic cigarette use by parents is associated with increased chances of pediatric atopic dermatitis, according to an article published last month by JAMA Dermatology.

In a retrospective cross-sectional analysis of the 2014 to 2018 National Health Interview Survey, researchers found that parental electronic cigarette use was reported in 18% of cases in which children indicated having had eczema or any kind of skin allergy in the past 12 months; parental electronic cigarette use was reported in only 14.4% of cases that did not include pediatric atopic dermatitis.
