Atopic Dermatitis

What is Atopic Dermatitis?

Symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis including cracked, scaling skin, bumps and severe itching and can affect almost any area of the body, although the backs of the elbows and knees, hands, feet and neck are the most frequent areas affected. Causes vary but include hypersensitivity associated with asthama, allergies, and chronic dermatitis like eczema.

Treatments

The primary treatment is to identify potential triggers and avoid them. It’s critical to avoid drying out skin affected by atopic dermatitis. Use a cleanser and moisturizer that’s fragrance-free and formulated specifically for sensitive skin. Moisturizers replace lipids in the outer layer of the skin that are deficient in people with dry skin and eczema. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Atopic Dermatitis

Itchy, irritated skin is no fun to have. One common cause of this frustrating problem is a condition called atopic dermatitis, also referred to as eczema. This is a skin problem that usually starts early in life and may come and go over a lifetime. It can cause a variety of unpleasant signs and symptoms including cracked, scaling skin, bumps and severe itching. It can affect almost any area of the body, although the backs of the elbows and knees, hands, feet and neck are some of the most frequent areas affected. Even the face can be involved. Sometimes the cracks and fissures can become infected with bacteria or the areas scar from constant scratching. That’s why it’s important to treat the atopic dermatitis.

What Causes It?

No one knows the exact cause of this skin condition, but the immune system is almost certainly involved since many people with it also have allergies, hay fever or asthma. There is a genetic component since eczema runs in families. In addition, many people with atopic dermatitis or eczema have dry skin. Certain triggers seem to make the symptoms worse, and these triggers vary from person to person. Common ones include certain soaps and skin care products, stress, temperature changes, fabrics, foods, low humidity and anything that dries out the skin.
