If you're the parent of young children, the phrase "Winter is coming!" is almost as dreaded as it is on the television show Game of Thrones. True, you don't have to worry about sudden attacks by zombie armies, but you do have to be concerned about your infants and young kids being exposed to more than the usual number of health risks. Not all of these risks will require a visit to your normal Pediatrician or to a Pediatric Urgent Care center, but it's good to be aware that there is a higher likelihood of respiratory illness during the Winter than at other times of the year.

High-quality early education and child care for young children improves their health and promotes their development and learning. Early education includes all of a child’s experiences at home, in child care, and in other preschool settings. Pediatricians have a role in promoting access to quality early education and child care beginning at birth for all children. The American Academy of Pediatrics affords pediatricians the opportunity to promote the educational and socioemotional needs of young children with other advocacy groups.

Atopic dermatitis is a common inflammatory skin condition characterized by relapsing eczematous lesions in a typical distribution. It can be frustrating for pediatric patients, parents, and health care providers alike. The pediatrician will treat the majority of children with atopic dermatitis as many patients will not have access to a pediatric medical subspecialist, such as a pediatric dermatologist or pediatric allergist. This report provides up-to-date information regarding the disease and its impact, pathogenesis, treatment options, and potential complications. The goal of this report is to assist pediatricians with accurate and useful information that will improve the care of patients with atopic dermatitis.
