A 2014 article from the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (vol 134, no 5, p.993) linking air pollution irritants to outbreaks of Atopic Dermatitis, including skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis. The study calls for more research on the exact mechanisms through which air pollution can worsen these skin conditions.

The environmental factors that induce the development of [Atopic Dermatitis, “AD”] must be identified and avoided for disease prevention. In children with pre-existing AD, it is critical to find environmental triggers to exacerbate AD symptoms, because AD should be managed with strict avoidance of various aggravating factors as well as appropriate skin care and reduction of inflammation. There is growing evidence that air pollution might act as an important environmental risk factor in the development or aggravation of AD
