How do skincare practices in newborn babies vary across the world?

We are a team of UK doctors working in paediatrics and dermatology, and are researching skincare practices in newborn babies in different countries. We know that there are huge differences between the proportion of children with eczema internationally, yet we do not know why.

We are inviting you to take part in this study by completing our questionnaire, which is attached. This can be completed as a Word document or as a Google Form.

We hope to use this information to better understand the differences in skincare, and therefore childhood eczema, between countries across the world.

Please return your completed Word questionnaires via email to:

For any queries, please contact us at the email address above.

Many thanks for your time,
