(ANSA) - Rome, September 25 - Dolls and stuffed animals are
taking a backseat to mascara and rouge among Italian elementary
school girls - enough to spark an epidemic of make-up-induced
dermatitis.
Girls as young as seven or eight are focusing on their
looks - as are their parents, who either doll them up or help
them beautify themselves, the president of the Italian
Federation of Pediatricians (FIMP), Giuseppe Mele, warned
Tuesday.
"The use of make-up among girls has led to the sudden rise
of allergic or contact dermatitis, recording a 16.7% increase in
such pathologies in the 8-12-year-old age group," Mele told
journalists at a Rome presentation of the Sixth National FIMP
Congress, which will take place in Genoa September 27-29.
"The trend to note is that today children increasingly are
considered like 'toys in the shop window', a spectacle and an
'accessory' of parents' desires," Mele declared.
Mele also warned that marketeers increasingly target
children directly, rather than indirectly through their mothers
- "a phenomenon to monitor closely," Mele added.
