    Eczema can begin at any age, and there are different types of eczema that affect people at different stages in their life. For newborn babies, they often start to develop eczema around six months of age, and then as children they often grow out of it around the age of three to five, only to find that it comes back again in their teens. Some people only develop eczema for their first time in their 50s and 60s or even later.
