Atopic Dermatitis

dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is chronic inflammatory skin disorder. It often occurs in individuals with a personal or family history of allergic rhinitis, asthma, or food allergy. It usually presents in the first few months of life and often improves with age. There is no cure for atopic dermatitis. The goals of treatment are to reduce inflammation, control itching, prevent secondary skin infections, and help the skin retain moisture.
