Calming Skin Conditions

Atopic dermatitis is often called eczema and is the most common type of dermatitis. It is a chronic skin disorder that causes dry, itchy, scaly patches on the skin, often on the face and scalp in babies. Symptoms may last until the teens or adulthood. It rarely starts in adulthood and is not contagious.

Atopic dermatitis tends to run in families. This suggests a genetic link. It’s also associated with asthma and allergies.

Treatment for this condition is aimed at calming the skin inflammation, decreasing the itching, and preventing infections. Good skin care and medicine to control itching and infection are used.
