Will a child with sensitive skin outgrow it?

ANSWER

A child with eczema has a very good chance of outgrowing it before age 5 and a 40% to 50% chance of outgrowing it by the time they're a teen. About 80% of people ages 11-30 have outbreaks of acne. For most of them, acne typically goes away sometime in their 30s. Psoriasis is considered a chronic, lifelong disease.
