From the USA: Parental E-Cigarette Use Linked to Increase in Pediatric Atopic Dermatitis

Parental electronic cigarette use is associated with increased odds of pediatric atopic dermatitis (AD), according to a research letter published online May 22 in JAMA Dermatology.

Gun Min Youn, from the Stanford University School of Medicine in California, and colleagues conducted a retrospective cross-sectional analysis of the 2014 to 2018 National Health Interview Survey to examine the association between parental e-cigarette use and pediatric AD. Pediatric AD was ascertained by asking whether the child had eczema or any kind of skin allergy in the past 12 months.
