Atopic Dermatitis Information and Treatment

Atopic dermatitis , sometimes called eczema , is a kind of dermatitis , an atopic skin disease. The word "atopic" describes a group of allergic or associated diseases that often affect several members of a family. These families may not only have allergies such as hay fever and asthma but also show skin eruptions called atopic dermatitis. The word eczema is used to describe all kinds of red, blistering, oozing, scaly, brownish, thickened and itching skin conditions. Infantile eczema or neurodermatitis, is a skin disorder caused due to hypersensitivity (allergy - related) reactions occurring within the skin. It is characterized by inflammation, itching and scaling of the skin. Atopic dermatitis may be worse when you are exposed to certain foods, infection, stress, seasonal or climate changes, irritants (such as soaps or chemicals), or allergens (such as dust mites or animal dander ). Although older studies have indicated that most children outgrow the condition, more recent studies report that many people continue to have relapses or to have the condition, although not as severely, as teenagers and adults. You may also develop atopic dermatitis as an adult. Atopic dermatitis is sometimes called eczema or atopic eczema. But atopic dermatitis is only one of many types of eczema.

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, itchy skin condition that is very common in children but may occur at any age. It is the most common form of dermatitis . This condition usually starts in early childhood, especially when there is a family history of atopy . The skin fails to hold in moisture, becomes dry, then inflamed, itchy and often infected. Various combinations of factors cause the dryness. Allergies leading to an overactive immune system and hereditary dry skin (ichthyosis vulgaris) are the most prominent internal and external factors. To treat this disease you need to work with the doctor in identifying and reducing those factors in your or your child's life that trigger of flare-up the disease. These are different for each person, so no one therapy is appropriate for all eczema patients.
