Dermatitis. 2021 Sep 7. doi: 10.1097/DER.0000000000000795. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with substantial financial cost, including increased out-of-pocket (OOP) expenses. Associations and impact of OOP cost are poorly understood.OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to characterize the impact and associations of OOP health care expenses for AD.METHODS: A 25-question online survey was administered to National Eczema Association members (N = 113,502). Inclusion criteria (US residents aged ≥18 years; self-reported AD or primary caregiver of individual with AD) were met by 77.3% (1118 of 1447).RESULTS: Respondents with monthly OOP expenses greater than $200 were more likely to have increased AD severity, flares, health care provider visits, prescription polypharmacy, use of step-up therapy, frequent skin infections, and poorer disease control (P

The objective of this study was to characterize the burden of atopic dermatitis in Japanese adult patients relative to the general population. Japanese adults (≥18 years) with a self‐reported diagnosis of atopic dermatitis and adult controls without atopic dermatitis/eczema/dermatitis were identified from the 2013 Japan National Health and Wellness Survey. Atopic dermatitis patients were propensity‐score matched with non‐atopic dermatitis controls (1:2 ratio) on demographic variables. Patient‐reported outcome data on comorbidities, mood and sleep disorders, health‐related quality of life, work productivity and...

ConclusionsExposure to prenatal maternal psychosocial stress was associated with increased risk, albeit modestly, of asthma and allergy in the offspring. The pronounced risk during the third trimester may represent cumulative stress exposure throughout pregnancy rather than trimester‐specific effect. Our findings may represent a causal effect or a result of inherent biases in studies, particularly residual confounding.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
