Atopic dermatitis, a form of eczema, is a chronic skin disorder that causes dry, itchy skin with red rashes. It is most common in babies and children, and tends to affect those with a family history of allergies and asthma. Atopic dermatitis is most commonly found on the face and fold areas of arms and legs. It is usually mild and may go away on its own, but we often treat patients with more severe cases that need expert care.
Before seeing your doctor, first try gentle soaps and moisturizing after bathing and also antihistamines for itching. If this is unsuccessful, our doctors are here to guide your individual treatment plan.
