I noticed, at the dermatologist recently, that most of the children waiting were mixed race or from ethnic minorities. I mentioned this to the dermatologist who agreed, but had no further comment to make. Does anyone know of any research/information on mixed race childrens experience of eczema? It would be so useful to know if there were any features..... anybody got any clues?
Interesting. I had never heard that there was any such connection. My children are mixed race. My DD has very mild eczema, but DS doesn't. I had always assumed that DD inherited from DH, who also has it. (He's not mixed race.)
