Eczema enables substantial loss of liquids through the skin, permitting allergens to enter.

According to one spokesperson of Oregon State-University, "In these reports, we have basically proven that lacking Ctip2 lowers the lipid levels in the skin, which is crucial for epidermis to stay healthy, protected and proper functioning." Due to the malfunctioning of Ctip2, the skin's capability to resist inflammation goes down, which ultimately leads to eczema. The problem, characterized by red, dry and itchy skin, is now projected to affect nearly 20% of school children and over 10% of adults. There is additionally an increasing body of study showing it might be associated with pollen or food allergens.
