Wildfire Smoke Can Trigger Eczema

Posted by:

According to a study that analyzed data from a dermatology clinic in San Francisco, visits for atopic dermatitis (eczema) and general itching increased following a major wildfire 175 miles away. Study co-author Dr. Raj Fadadu writes, “Skin is the largest organ of the human body, and it’s in constant interaction with the external environment. So, it makes sense that changes in the external environment, such as increases or decreases in air pollution, could affect our skin health.” JAMA Dermatology, April 2021
