Abstract

Background: Information on the impact of childhood atopic dermatitis (AD) on their families is lacking. This study reports parent-reported impact of childhood AD on their families in 5 regions worldwide. Methods: This cross-sectional, web-based survey of children aged 6 months to 20 = high impact), time spent taking care of their child due to AD in the past week, and time missed from work for AD-related issues in the past 4 weeks. Results: Among 7,465 children with diagnosed AD (clear+mild 59.0%/moderate 35.9%/severe 4.9%), the mean ± SD (median) DFI scores were 8.9 ± 7.9 (8)/13.0 ± 7.5 (13)/19.4 ± 8.3 (21). The mean ± SD (median) time that parents spent taking care of their child due to AD in the past week was 6.3 ± 12.1 (3)/12.3 ± 18.9 (6)/18.4 ± 22.4 (10) hours. Most employed/self-employed parents reported missing ≥1 workday for their child’s AD-related issues in the previous 4 weeks (65.3%/81.0%/89.9%), for a mean ± SD (median) of 2.4 ± 3.2 (2)/3.8 ± 4.3 (3)/6.6 ± 5.9 (5) days. Results were similar across regions. Conclusions: Childhood AD impacts negatively on the QoL of the patient’s family and their caregiver’s work, with the burden generally increasing with increasing AD severity.
