treatment for dermatitis
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that is noncontagious and leads to itchy, dry skin lesions that can damage the intact skin barrier. Although the etiology is not known, it is widely believed that family history and allergies play a role. The incidence of atopic dermatitis is usually higher in early childhood, while other allergic conditions can develop later in life, such as allergic rhinitis and asthma. Atopic dermatitis is typically treated through topical ointments and the systematic use of pharmaceuticals to control symptoms. Long term or improper use of medications can lead to other complications. When symptoms of the condition are chronic or recurring, they can seriously impact one's quality of life, resulting in many patients seeking alternative care.
