Allergy & Asthma Associates of Maine and the MMC Research Institute Studying Effects of Bathing on Children’s Eczema
Does bathing impact a child’s eczema? That’s a question Dr. Ivan Cardona and Dr. Erin Kempe, from Allergy & Asthma Associates of Maine and the MMC Research Institute, are asking. A team led by Erin Kempe, DO, and Ivan Cardona, MD, is conducting a clinical research study to understand the best method of treatment for atopic dermatitis with regard to frequency and duration of bathing.
Participants will be provided free moisturizers and cleansers, as well as individualized treatment information on the best way to treat eczema.
The study is accepting participants who meet the following eligibility requirements:
· Between the ages of 6 months and 11 years
· Diagnosed with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis
· Must have parental consent
The study will take place over the course of a month, consisting of four office visits ranging from 1 to 2 hours in length. These office visits could occur at any of our four locations: Portland (195 Fore River Pkwy # 410), Intermed (259 Main Street, Yarmouth), Manchester (1053 Western Avenue), or Kennebunk (2 Livewell Drive North Tower) offices.
Participants in the study must arrange for their own transportation.
